“Two people were seriously injured in this collision, so it’s extremely important that any witnesses come forward with any information they have.

“We’d also like to review the dash-cam footage of anyone who drove on the A46 near Newark at this time, particularly lorry drivers who were in the area.

“The A46 remains closed between the Cattle Market Road and Brownhills Roundabouts, so we’d advise drivers to avoid this area for the time being.

“Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101, quoting incident 141 of 26 August 2022, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
