Man airlifted to hospital after A55 crash near Conwy Tunnel

A man was airlifted to Stoke’s trauma centre with potentially life-threatening injuries after a lorry crashed into a wall near the Conwy[1] tunnel.

The A55[2] eastbound between junction 18 and junction 19 was shut for nearly four hours yesterday[3] (Sunday, August 20) after the incident which happened at around 5pm.

The incident caused major traffic delays and North Wales Police took to Twitter to advise motorists to find an alternative route.

Wales Ambulance Service, Wales Air Ambulance and North Wales Police were called to the scene and were also assisted by the Cheshire and North Wales Alliance Armed Policing Unit.

The westbound carriageway was also closed for the air ambulance to land and take off and it is thought that one lane of two remained closed due to damage to a barrier.

The road was fully reopened in both directions at 9pm with traffic clearing by 10pm.

A spokesman for the Wales Ambulance Service said: “We received the call at 5.11pm.

“We sent two rapid response vehicles, two land ambulances and two helicopters to the scene.

“One casualty was flown to the trauma centre in Stoke.

“It is likely that the casualty has sustained life-threatening injuries for him to be taken via helicopter to Stoke.

“There were no other casualties involved.”

It is unknown whether the casualty was the driver of the lorry involved in the incident.

People were stuck in traffic around the area for up to three hours with one person describing the A55 as a “total nightmare”.

An eyewitness, who asked not to be named, described the scene of the accident as “dramatic”.

He said: “A lorry cab crashed into the wall approximately 500 yards away from the Conwy tunnel in Llandudno Junction.”

He added: “When I was there I could hear the Wales Air Ambulance approaching and it slowly landed on the A55.”
