A woman sustained serious injuries after a crash in Redbourn Road, St Albans.

At about 6pm yesterday a red Ford Ka Luxury was travelling towards St Albans when it was in a crash with a silver and light blue Ford Transit panel van, travelling towards the M1.

The driver of the Ford, a woman in her 60s, received serious injuries and is currently receiving treatment at Addenbrooke’s hospital. She is in a serious but stable condition.

The driver of the Ford Transit van received minor injuries.
