Air ambulance called to crash

A HEAVILY pregnant woman has paid tribute to Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance following a lucky escape.

The Grantham mum-to-be, 25, who has asked not to be named, was driving along Londonthorpe Lane in a Peugeot 307 on Friday evening at around 5pm when she was hit head-on by a Fiat Punto.

Being almost eight months pregnant, the air ambulance was called and she was air-lifted to Lincoln Hospital in less than ten minutes.

The woman suffered bruising in the accident but no serious injuries. Fortunately, her unborn child was not harmed.

The road was closed for two hours following the crash before being re-opened at 7.30pm.
