Driver critical after A38 horror crash
A driver remains in critical condition in hospital this morning following a collision on the A38 near Derby.
Police say a second person was also badly injured in the accident, which happened at 7.10pm last night, between the A610 at Ripley and the B6179 at Coxbench. It involved five vehicles and the carriageway remained closed until around 11pm when police re-opened it to traffic.
Traffic on the southbound stretch was being allowed to turn around and drive the wrong way back up the road so vehicles could exit the A38 at the Ripley roundabout.
