A woman in her sixties has been left with "life-changing" injuries after reportedly falling from a moving vehicle on the A1(M) earlier today (Wednesday, April 3).

Herts police said that she fell "for reasons unknown at this time".

They were called to the scene, on the southbound carriageway between Junction 9 (Letchworth) and Junction 8 (Stevenage North), around 11.20am.

The carriageway was closed while the emergency services dealt with the incident, and traffic on the northbound side of the motorway was also briefly stopped to allow Essex & Herts Air Ambulance to access the scene.

Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, two ambulance officer vehicles, and three fire engines were also sent to the incident.

The woman was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital by road ambulance.

A spokesperson for Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue Service said that they had been called to reports of "a collision between a car and a camper van". Police confirmed that the camper van involved was a Peugeot Boxer.

The Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson added: "Nobody was trapped so firefighters helped to make the scene safe, carried out precautionary checks on some of the people involved and assisted the air ambulance."

Road closures were lifted at around 1pm.

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to call 101, quoting ISR 261 of 3 April, 2024.
