A CAR driven by a pensioner from Guilsborough has crashed into three vehicles.

The incident happened on Thursday afternoon at 12.20pm on the A5199 between Spratton and Creaton.

A grey Volkswagen Polo, driven by a 91-year-old man from Guilsborough, was travelling towards Creaton on the A5199 when, for reasons yet unknown, it veered onto the opposite carriageway and was in collision with three vehicles.

The Polo struck the side of a Scania lorry, then a black Hyundai Getz, before colliding with a BMW X3.

The driver of the Polo and his passenger, a 92-year-old woman also from Guilsborough, were taken to University Hospital Coventry. Both remain in hospital and the passenger is in a critical condition.

The Hyundai driver, a 26-year-old woman from Kingsthorpe, was treated at hospital for minor injuries.

The BMW driver, a 51-year-old man from Leicester, and the lorry driver, a 65-year-old man from Kettering, were uninjured.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Collison Investigation Team on 101 or call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615.
