A woman who was hurt in a three-vehicle crash which closed the A14 yesterday (Monday) has not suffered life-threatening or life-changing injuries, police have confirmed.

The victim was airlifted to hospital in Coventry after the incident on the major road's westbound carriageway between Junction 11 and Junction 10, near Burton Latimer, at about 2.40pm.

She had to be cut free from her vehicle by the fire service, and today a police spokesman said her injuries were not life-threatening or life-changing.

The spokesman confirmed two of the vehicles involved were a silver Ford Mondeo and a Mitsubishi Lancer.

Highways England initially closed the westbound carriageway between Junction 13 and Junction 10, before also closing the eastbound stretch so the air ambulance could land.

The road fully re-opened by 5.30pm.
