An 81-year-old woman has died and a passenger remains in a serious condition following a crash on the A30 on Friday afternoon.
The road was closed for more than six hours after a Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Astra collided at Loggans Moor, near Hayle, shortly after 2pm.
Firefighters cut two casualties free from the wreckage and Cornwall’s Air Ambulance landed on the carriageway to airlift one of the casualties to hospital.
The female driver of one of the vehicles, an 81-year-old from Essex, died following the collision. Her husband remains in a ‘serious’ condition at the Royal Cornwall Hospital at Treliske.
The occupants of the second vehicle involved have been released from hospital after receiving treatment for their injuries.
