Emergency services closed the A63 eastbound carriageway between South Cave (A1034 junction) and North Ferriby (A15 junction) after the accident was reported at 6.30pm on Thursday (October 17). An ambulance and fire engines lined the road with drivers stuck in their cars for miles behind the accident, which happened close to the junction for Brough and Welton. Traffic information service Inrix says the road was closed so an air ambulance could land. An eyewitness at the scene said: “The A63 near the Welton turnoff is completely closed. Drivers are out of their cars and appear to be queuing back for miles towards South Cave. There are four fire engines here, along with police and ambulances. “It looks like there’s been a two-car collision and traffic is being diverted through Welton but causing long delays there too.” Humberside Police said the driver of one of the cars was injured and they are searching for a woman who is believed to have fled the scene of the collision. The road was fully closed until about 8.30pm, when it partially reopened. It fully reopened at around 6am on Friday. Humberside Fire and Rescue Service said it sent four engines and a fire officer to the scene. All the details will appear below. Click here for more news.
