Update: Crash attended by fire, police and ambulances near Colsterworth closed A1 southbound
A collision between three vehicles closed the A1 southbound between Colsterworth and the A606 junction outside Stamford yesterday evening.
At 6pm the fire service, multiple ambulances and police were all at the scene of the accident south of the Colsterworth junction.
One driver was seen being assisted by emergency services from a damaged car that was in the central reservation.
Lincolnshire Police said the accident was ‘non-serious’ and Fire and Rescue confirmed that engines from Grantham and Corby Glen were called out at 5.31pm. They released two casualties and also gave casualty care.
There were long traffic delays and the A1 southbound was closed between its junctions with the A151 and the A606 while the vehicles were recovered.
The entry slip road on the A151 was also closed, and both re-opened at around 8.45pm.
Then at 12.58am Grantham firefighters returned to the A1 southbound to reports of a car fire at Foston. This turned out to be steam from the car engine mistaken for smoke.
