A 28-YEAR-OLD man has had to be airlifted to hospital following a three car crash in Monday morning’s rush hour.
Crews from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue, East Midlands Ambulance Service and Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance were called out to the crash, on the A52 in Kirk Langley at around 7.45am on Monday.
Two people were treated on the scene for minor injuries, but a man who was trapped in his vehicle needed treatment for neck and upper back pain.
He was removed from the vehicle by the fire and rescue officers and air ambulance paramedics fitted him with a collar placing him on a scoop.
He was handed over to land ambulance paramedics and transferred to Royal Derby Hospital.
The road was blocked in both directions while the crews carried out their work and the first lane was re-opened at around 9am.
