A40 crash live updates as man and woman left with life-threatening injuries

A man and a woman are in hospital with life-threatening injuries following a serious crash on a main route in Monmouthshire. The A40 in Monmouthshire is closed on the eastbound carriageway following the collision.

The two hospitalised are in their seventies, police say. The incident happened between Raglan’s High Street and the A449 interchange - an accident hotspot where locals have long called for road changes. Last year the route was changed from the national speed limit to 50mph, but some say more needs to be done.

Multiple emergency services are at the scene following the latest collision on the stretch. Officers from Gwent Police were joined by the air ambulance, the fire service and paramedics while collision investigators remain at the scene which is cordoned off while the road remains closed.

A spokesperson for the force confirmed an elderly man and woman have been hospitalised with "potentially life-threatening injuries". They said: "We received a report of a road traffic collision on the A40 near Raglan around 12.10pm on Thursday, May 16. Officers attended along with personnel from the Welsh Ambulance Service, Welsh Air Ambulance and South Wales Fire and Rescue Service. The collision involved two cars: a Ford and a Jeep. The rear seat passengers of the Ford, a man and a woman in their seventies, have sustained potentially life-threatening injuries. The incident is ongoing." You can follow updates below.
