A woman in her 60s has been airlifted to hospital with serious injuries this morning after her car crashed into a tree on the A1(M) near Stevenage.
The woman’s car collided with another car on the southbound stretch of the motorway between Junction 7 for Stevenage and Junction 6 for Welwyn at around 11am.
It then hit a tree before ending up on the hard shoulder with the woman trapped inside. Fire crews used cutting equipment to free her, which they did by midday.
She was then rushed to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with serious leg and chest injuries.
The southbound stretch of the motorway was fully closed around Junction 7 while she was freed.
