A WOMAN sustained life-threatening injuries after a motorway smash.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash on the A1(M) at the weekend just before 5pm on Saturday on the southbound carriageway near to Tickhill.

A black Ford Ka, driven by the 20-year-old woman, was travelling in lane one when it apparently veered into lane two, near the central reservation.

The car then seemed to spin out of control across to the hard shoulder where it hit the nearside crash barrier, before rolling along a grass banking and finally coming to rest in the centre of the carriageway.

The woman, from the March area of Cambridgeshire, suffered life-threatening internal, hip and rib injuries.

She was taken to St James’ Hospital, Leeds, where she is currently detained.

Anyone with information should call 101 and quote incident number 836 of January 21.
