Police are appealing for information relating to a two-car head-on collision where a woman from Ottery St Mary suffered ‘life-threatening’ multiple injuries and remains in a critical condition in hospital.

Police are appealing for witnesses following a ‘serious’ two-car collision on the A30 at Clyst Honiton near to Exeter Airport.

A 48-year-old woman passenger from Ottery St Mary was taken to hospital with life-threatening multiple injuries and is in a critical condition after the car she was travelling in was involved in a head-on collision in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police said the collision took place at around 12.25am and involved a silver Vauxhall Astra and a silver Seat Altea.

The critically-injured woman was travelling with the 49-year-old driver of the Seat, also from Ottery St Mary. He was also taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital with serious injuries.

A Devon and Cornwall police spokesperson said: “It is believed that the Astra was travelling west on the east-bound carriageway when it collided head-on with the Seat travelling in the opposite direction.”

Anyone with information regarding the collision is asked to contact police on 101, quoting reference 21 of 211012.
