A driver remains in critical condition at Derriford Hospital after being seriously injured in a road traffic collision on the A3072 between Folly Gate and Jacobstowe near Okehampton on Monday morning.

The incident occurred at around 8.25am and the man was airlifted to hospital in Plymouth.

Police are keen to trace the driver of a white car/van hybrid travelling from Folly Gate in the direction of Jacobstowe at the time of the collision.

They believe the driver may be an important witness to the event and it is thought the van had slowed to allow other traffic to pass a tractor, which was being used to trim the roadside hedge.

The van driver or anyone who has any information regarding the collision is asked to call the police on 08452 777444, quoting log number 162 170809.
