LATEST: Woman ‘serious but stable’ after King’s Lynn crash

A woman injured in a collision with a car in Lynn’s town centre yesterday morning is in a “serious, but stable” condition in hospital today, police say.

Investigations are continuing into the cause of the crash, which has prompted calls for a review of speed limits in the town centre.

Emergency crews were called to Railway Road, close to the junctions with Albion Street and Wellesley Street at around 11.10am on Tuesday following the collision, which involved a silver Peugeot car.

A Magpas air ambulance landed nearby in the bus station around half an hour later to help treat the rider, a woman believed to be in her 30s.

She was flown to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge with serious head and pelvic injuries.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said he could not confirm if the woman’s condition was life-threatening or not.

The incident caused widespread travel disruption around the town, with hundreds of passengers left stranded in the bus station, which was completey shut to allow the helicopter to land.

There have also been calls on social media for the 20 mile per hour speed limit that covers some parts of the town centre to be extended.

Anyone who saw the crash, or who has information about it is asked to contact PC Richard Clark, of the roads policing unit based at Swaffham, via the non-emergency 101 number.
