A MAN is in a critical condition after an accident on the A5 near to the Long Buckby turning yesterday (Thursday, July 7).

A black Nissan X-trail was travelling north when it is believed to have overtaken a small blue car. The Nissan was then in collision with a grey Vauxhall Astra driving south.

The passenger in the Astra, a 25-year-old from Northumberland, sustained serious injuries and was taken to Walsgrave Hospital in Coventry by air ambulance. The drivers of both vehicles suffered minor injuries.

Officers would particularly like to speak to the occupants of the blue car and any other witnesses.
