A driver is described as being in a critical condition after a serious crash on the A30 slip-road, heading towards Cornwall.

Police say two vehicles were involved on the stretch just off the M5 near Exeter.

Paramedics and an air ambulance were also scrambled on Saturday morning.

The road was closed for around four hours whilst specialist crash investigators went over the scene.

Devon and Cornwall Police are urging anyone who saw something just before 11.30am to come forward.

“At 11:26 hrs on Saturday 22nd June 2019, Devon and Cornwall Police were notified of a Road Traffic Incident on the A30 Westbound slip from the M5 south in Exeter, Devon.

“We believe this to be a multi vehicle collision involving a Citroen DS3 and a Nissan Qashqai.

“The driver of the Citroen motor car was conveyed by South Western Ambulance Service to Exeter Emergency Department.  The driver’s condition remains critical at this time.

“The A30 westbound off-slip from the M5 southbound carriageway remained closed while a forensic examination of the scene was conducted. The road was fully reopened at 15:23 hrs having been inspected by Highways England.

“Officers from the Exeter Roads Policing Unit and Serious Collision Investigation Team are appealing for witnesses to come forward quoting log number 0366 of 22/06/19.
