It’s thought the woman was a passenger in a Toyota Yaris when it smashed into a traffic island and a lamp post. She was airlifted to the LGI and is today in a stable condition.

A man was also in the car and was taken by ambulance to the LGI.

The car landed on its side and firefighters from Halifax and Rastrick had to cut one casualty out of the vehicle.

No other cars were involved in the crash.
