Grantham woman critical after head-on collision

A 44-year-old Grantham woman is in a critical condition in hospital after a head-on collision in Lincolnshire.

The crash, which involved a silver Vauxhall Corsa and a blue Nissan X-Trail, also left a 15-year-old boy with a suspected broken arm and a 7-year-old boy suffering from shock.

The cars collided on the B6403 High Dyke around two miles south of the A17 at Byards Leap at around 5.45pm, with both ending up in a roadside ditch.

The driver of the Nissan, a 39-year-old woman from Cranwell, was also taken to Lincoln County Hospital but was released after treatment.
