Leicester Mercury - - News -

TWO driv­ers are in hos­pi­tal, one with se­ri­ous in­juries, af­ter they were in­volved in a two-car col­li­sion in Rut­land.

The col­li­sion be­tween the red Citroen DS3 and black Mit­subishi Out­lander hap­pened in To­lethorpe, Ry­hall at 9am on Thurs­day.

The more se­ri­ously-in­jured driver, a man in his 30s, was taken to the Queen’s Med­i­cal Cen­tre, in Not­ting­ham, by air am­bu­lance from the scene of the col­li­sion, near the junc­tion with Ry­hall Road.

Po­lice said: “He re­mains in hos­pi­tal in a se­ri­ous but sta­ble con­di­tion.

“A sec­ond man, who is in his 40s and who was driv­ing the sec­ond ve­hi­cle in­volved, was also taken to the Queen’s Med­i­cal Cen­tre.

“He re­mains in hos­pi­tal. His in­juries are not be­lieved to be lifethreat­en­ing or life-chang­ing.”

De­tec­tives are ap­peal­ing to any­one who wit­nessed the in­ci­dent, or who saw ei­ther ve­hi­cle be­fore­hand to make con­tact.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Pete Davies said: “We are con­tin­u­ing to es­tab­lish the full cir­cum­stances and are ask­ing any­one who was in the area and who has any in­for­ma­tion to con­tact us if you have not al­ready done so.”

Con­tact Det Con Davies on 101.
