The scene at Preston Island earlier this morning.

The A5 was initially closed in both directions from the Preston Island in Shrewsbury, to Junction 7 of the M54, for Wellington, in the wake of the incident, at around 9.35am.

The westbound carriageway was re-opened by midday, with the eastbound carriageway cleared and open as usual a couple of hours later.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said that a woman had been seriously injured in the incident, and was airlifted to hospital in a critical condition.

The M54 has been deserted after it was closed due to a crash at Shrewsbury.
