AN AIR ambulance has landed in the middle of one of Ashbourne’s busiest roads to support paramedics at a road accident involving three cars.
A 24-year-old man, who was suffering from neck and back pain was taken to Royal Derby Hospital by East Midlands Ambulance service, along with two other people, who were also injured at the scene.
The road was closed following the accident, which took place on the A515 between Cubley and Sudbury on Friday at around 8am, and was re-opened around an hour later.
Derbyshire Police and Ashbourne’s fire and rescue officers were also called out to the accident.
The Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance crew was also called out, in the same morning, to an accident just north of Ashbourne, in which a van had left the road and rolled over.
The 55-year-old male driver of the van was suffering from pain and lacerations to the face following the crash, which happened shortly before 9am.
Paramedics assessed the casualty’s injuries then flew him to the Royal Derby hospital for further treatment.
