A collision had occurred between a motorcycle rider and a pedestrian, and the stretch of the A38 near the Shell garage was closed in both directions for several hours while both casualties received treatment at the scene.
Sergeant Craig Luckett, of Nottinghamshire’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Two people were injured in this collision – one of them very seriously – and we are working to understand exactly what happened.
“The rider, a man in his 40s, suffered a serious head injury and is being treated in hospital.
“A woman in her twenties was also injured and remains in hospital.
“Road closures remain in place as investigation work is carried out and officers would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident.
“We are especially keen to speak with anyone who may have dashcam footage of this incident.
“Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to call 101 quoting incident 72 of 29 March 2022.”
