A spokesman for the East Midlands Ambulance Service said: “An ambulance crew came across a multi-car collision at 6.14am this morning on the A1 southbound near Stamford and stopped to provide medical assistance.

“The crash involved three vans and a car, where one of the vehicles had gone over the barrier and onto the northbound carriageway.

“Two further ambulances, a doctor car, and the hazardous area response team attended the incident to treat four patients. One person was treated at the scene and three patients were taken to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham.

“Despite being due to finish at 5.30am, the crew which came across the RTC went above and beyond by staying to treat patients and convey them to hospital, and so finished their shift just before 10am.

The crash barrier was damaged in the collision and one lane of the southbound carriageway remains closed from the A606 as a result.
