The Scunthorpe lorry driver badly injured in yesterday's accident on the M180 was described as "critical but stable" today.
He was airlifted to Hull Royal Infirmary for treatment, where an update on his condition was given earlier today (Tuesday March 12).
A spokeswoman for Humberside Police said: “The man from Scunthorpe is currently in the ICU (intensive care unit) at Hull Royal Infirmary. His condition this morning is described as critical but stable.”
The company which employs the driver, Smiths of Scotter, said: “He is seriously injured and we are all hoping he makes a speedy recovery. Our thoughts are with his family.”
The M180 westbound, between junctions 2 and 1, fully reopened earlier today following the four-vehicle accident.
This section of the motorway had been closed since around 10am yesterday morning following the accident, but re-opened about 11.40pm last night.
Police are asking witnesses to call 101, quoting log 205 of March 11.
