Woman hurt in Althorpe crash

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a car ended up in a ditch close to the A18 in Althorpe.

The incident involved a silver Honda Civic which was being driven by a 40-year-old Scunthorpe woman

The vehicle left the carriageway and rolled into a roadside ditch resulting in the driver, who was the only occupant of the car, suffering serious injuries.

The road was closed until about 12.30pm to enable an investigation to begin and for the car to be recovered.

Any witnesses to the incident or anyone who saw the car being driven in the area prior to it leaving the road should contact Humberside Police on the non-emergency 101 number, referring to log 177 of 28 January 2012.
