Emergency services were called to the A470 in Gwynedd at about 12.30pm yesterday, and the road was shut soon after.

 

The male driver was flown to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.

 

A female passenger was taken to hospital by ambulance with ’non-life-threatening injuries’.

 

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman told the Daily Post: "The Wales Air Ambulance, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, and three crews in emergency ambulances attended the scene.

 

"Two patients have been taken to hospital; a man has been airlifted to Ysbyty Gwynedd in a serious condition, while a woman has been taken by road to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd with non-life-threatening injuries."

 

A North Wales Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said the crash involved a tractor and two trailers.

 

"We attended to make the vehicles safe and to help assist the ambulance service," said the spokesman.

 

The accident follows a crash between a tractor and a van on the A55 last Friday.
