Oulton Broad man dies after A17 crash

AN Oulton Broad man has died after he was involved in a three-vehicle collision in Nottinghamshire.

Neil Hunt, 59, was driving an MGF car along the A17 when he was involved in a crash with a van and a lorry at about 7.45am on Monday, outside Newark Golf Club.

A Nottinghamshire police spokesman said Mr Hunt's car and the lorry both ended up in a ditch after the crash in Beckingham Road, Coddington.

Mr Hunt remained trapped in his vehicle following the collision and firefighters from Newark were called to the scene to help free him. Specialist units from Newark and Highfield fire stations also attended.

They worked for about two hours before they were able to release him from the wreckage.

He suffered multiple serious injuries and was airlifted to Lincoln County Hospital, but was pronounced dead after arrival.

The driver of the lorry was uninjured, and the driver of the Vauxhall Astra van suffered minor injuries.
