Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward following a serious crash in Brookmans Park where a woman has been left in a critical condition.

Just after 3am today a silver Vauxhall Corsa was in collision with a tree in Great North Road (A100) between Welham Green and Brookmans Park.

The fire service attended to cut free a woman, aged in her 30s, who was trapped inside the vehicle.

“We have established that the Vauxhall Corsa, which has a registration plate number starting with YS59, was in the Welwyn area at around 12.55am today and I am also keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the vehicle around this time.”

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact Hertfordshire Constabulary via the non-emergency number 101, quoting ISR 52 of 24/4/17.

Alternatively, contact the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
