Two seriously injured in crash on A180 in Grimsby
TWO people suffered serious head injuries after the car they were travelling in was involved in a collision on the A180.
The incident happened adjacent to Adam Smith Street, in Grimsby, at about 11.15pm on Tuesday.
A white Mini Cooper car was being driven away from Cleethorpes by a 39-year-old Grimsby man when it left the carriageway and collided with a lamppost before travelling down a grass embankment onto Adam Smith Street.
The driver sustained severe facial injuries as well as injuries to his leg and back. The passenger, a 42-year-old Grimsby woman who was sitting in the front of the car, suffered a fracture to the skull and damage to her hip. Both casualties were taken to Grimsby’s Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital and are said to have serious but not life-threatening injuries.
Road closures were put in place until 4.30am to allow recovery of the vehicle and an examination of the scene.
Police are investigating the circumstances of the incident and are appealing for any witnesses to the collision or who anyone saw the Mini prior to the collision to contact Humberside Police on 101, quoting log number 757 of November 27.
