An air ambulance was sent to a “serious accident” near Ashbourne.

The A515 was blocked in both directions between the B5033 Cockshead Lane and Edlaston Lane.

Traffic company Inrix said the incident was “severe”.

A spokesman for the company said: “The A515 was blocked in both directions due to a serious accident. There was slow traffic.

“It affected traffic between Darley Moor and Ashbourne.”

A silver-blue Peugeot 306 was seen leaving the scene of the crash on the back of a recovery truck, and it appeared to have a tree branch through the windscreen.

Traffic started moving again in both directions shortly before 11am.
