By Grantham Reporter


A woman suffered serious but not life threatening injuries in an incident involving a lorry in Grantham yesterday.

Emergency services rushed to Grantham High Street after a serious collision was reported to police shortly before 12pm yesterday.

The air ambulance was called and the road was closed off by police, who diverted traffic.

The woman was taken to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham by land ambulance after being treated by medical staff in the middle of the road.

The doctor from the air ambulance travelled in the ambulance with the crew. There was also a LIVES nurse who attended.

The road was closed between the junction with St Peter's Hill and the Old Bank pub and didn't reopen until 4pm.

An EMAS spokesman said: "We received a call at 11:52am to attend an incident on High Street, Grantham. The caller reported a road traffic collision involving a patient and a lorry. We sent a double crewed ambulance to the scene and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance."
