Six people were injured after a four-vehicle collision in Northamptonshire last night (Tuesday).

The collision took place on the A427 near Stoke Albany, between Corby and Market Harborough, close to the Stoke Hill turning at about 6.20pm and involved a red VW Bora, blue Seat Leon, grey VW Fox and a white Mercedes Axor lorry.

The Bora, being driven by a 26-year-old man, and the lorry, being driven by a 54-year-old man, were both travelling towards Market Harborough, while the Leon, being driven by a 64-year-old man, and the Fox, being driven by a 27-year-old woman, were travelling in the opposite direction when the collision took place.

It is believed the Bora was overtaking the lorry when it had a minor collision with the Leon before the Bora was then in collision with the VW Fox and the lorry.

Six people were injured as a result, three seriously, with patients being taken to Kettering General Hospital, Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham and University Hospital Coventry.

The road was closed until 10pm while all three emergency services attended the incident and the vehicles were cleared from the carriageway.

Police officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or anyone who may have any information regarding it.

Anyone with information or who witnessed this incident is asked to call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615.
