A mother and baby were taken to hospital following a crash involving a car and a motorbike on the A45 this morning.

One lane of the westbound carriageway between the A509 Wilby Way and B573 Earls Barton Road at Great Doddington was blocked due to the incident, which Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance attended at about 9.30am.

A spokesman for the air ambulance said: “Once on scene paramedics assessed the mother and her baby, who didn’t appear to have any obvious injuries.

“As a precaution, the two were airlifted to University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment.

“A motorcyclist was also involved in the incident and was assessed and treated on scene by East Midlands Ambulance Service.”

The crash led to delays on the A45 as well as surrounding roads while emergency services attended the scene.

The road was cleared at about 12.30pm.
