Five people hospitalised after serious road accident

Five people, including two children, have been taken to hospital following a crash on the A18.

The incident happened at around 5.15pm on Wednesday, July 26 after a two vehicle crash was reported close to Hall Farm in Melton Ross Barnetby, near Humberside Airport.

A grey Nissan Navara and a silver coloured Audi estate car collided and a road closure was required to enable the attendance of emergency services.

The injuries to the children are thought to be minor, however one person is believed to have sustained serious injuries.

A man believed to be the driver of the Nissan left the scene of the collision and enquiries were undertaken to locate him without success.

Those enquiries are ongoing.

The road re-opened at 10.30pm.

Anyone with information is asked to call Humberside Police on 101 quoting log 397 of July 26.

Humberside Police originally said that the Audi driver fled the scene of the crash. However, they have now said that they believe the Nissan driver left the scene.
