At 1.10am this morning (September 9) we were called to reports of a serious collision at the junction of Friar Gate and Stafford Street in Derby.

The incident involved a Blue Renault Clio and a silver Mercedes E320.

An 18-year-old woman, who was the passenger in the Renault Clio, sustained serious, life threatening injuries and was taken to the QMC by air ambulance for treatment.
