A 45-year old woman was airlifted to hospital after she was involved in a head-on collision with another car in Badby, Northamptonshire yesterday.
The East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) was first to attend the scene at around 2pm yesterday and reported that the patient was unresponsive.
Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) were called at 2.25pm and landed ten minutes later 100 metres from the incident.
An air ambulance spokesperson said that on its arrival the 45-year-old woman had been removed from the vehicle and was found alert and in the recovery position.
