A171 remains closed in both directions after collision between cars and lorry
A TEENAGER was airlifted to hospital today (Tuesday, September 3) after a smash between a lorry and four cars on the A171 Guisborough to Whitby road.
The road was closed in both directions following the smash at 11.15am this morning, close to Scaling Dam, on the North Yorkshire border.
The crash involved a blue Mercedes HGV, driven by a 59-year-old man; a grey BMW 5-series driven by a 38-year-old man; a green Ford Fiesta driven by a 43-year-old man; a grey Honda Civic driven by a 51-year-old woman, and a black Mercedes A150, driven by an 18-year-old woman, with a 16-year-old male passenger.
The 18-year-old woman was airlifted to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough by the Great North Air Ambulance suffering from serious, but not life-threatening, chest, pelvis and arm injuries. She had been cut free from her car by firefighters.
She was taken straight to a specialist unit at James Cook, where her condition was described as stable.
A spokesman for the air ambulance said: “GNAAS were called this morning to assist North East and North Yorkshire Ambulance Service with a multiple vehicle and patient road traffic collision.
“Involved were an articulated lorry and cars. After assessing all those involved, four patients were taken to hospital, one by air after being cut free from her vehicle, and three by road.
“Three patients from the other vehicles received minor injuries and did not require hospital treatment.”
