A30 Cornwall crash latest
Police say an elderly woman remains in a critical condition in hospital after a Ford Transit van crashed into a stationary recovery vehicle on the A30 in Cornwall. The woman’s car had broken down and was being recovered at the time of crash, which saw A30 closed in both directions to allow the Air Ambulance to land at Victoria. This morning, police said the woman, who is described as a “local” 79-year-old, was taken to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth where she is in a critical condition.
Police said a Ford Transit crashed into the rear of the recovery vehicle and rolled onto its side. The driver of the Ford Transit, a 64 year old male from Wales, escaped injury. The A30 was closed in both directions to allow Cornwall Air Ambulance to land, as previously reported by CornwallLive.
In statement, a spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: “At about 1:13pm on Wednesday 2nd September 2020, Police were notified of a road traffic collision on the Eastbound carriageway of the A30 between Victoria and Innis Downs. “The collision involved a black Ford Transit and a white and red Mitsubishi Recovery Truck. “The Recovery Truck was stationary with the recovery driver attending to a broken down black Peugeot 308 and its occupants when the Ford Transit collided with the rear of the Recovery Truck.
Significant damage was caused to all vehicles with the Ford Transit rolling on to its side. “The driver of the Ford Transit, a 64 year old male from Wales, escaped injury but sadly a 79 year old local female from the broken down Peugeot sustained serious injuries in the collision and is in a critical condition at Derriford Hospital. “Officers from the Alliance’s Roads Policing Team attended the scene and commenced an investigation of the scene with officers working to establish the cause of the collision.
“Police are appealing for any witnesses who were in the area at the time of the collision and may also have Dash Cam.
