Motorists are being urged to contact police following an incident on the A6 between Mountsorrel and Loughborough this morning (Thursday 17 September).
Shortly after 10.45am, police received a report of a woman lying in the carriageway.
Officers attended and found the woman had suffered life-threatening injuries. She has since been taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham.
Two men aged 19 and 18, who were in a van nearby, have been arrested in connection with the incident.
Enquiries to establish the circumstances of how the woman sustained her injuries are ongoing.
The A6 remains closed countybound between Granite Way, Mountsorrel and Quorn. The citybound carriageway, which was also closed, has since been reopened.
Detective Inspector Mark Parish, from the force’s Complex investigation team, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who was travelling along the A6 between Mountsorrel and Loughborough in either direction this morning.
“I would urgently like to speak to anyone who has a dashcam installed in their vehicle – or who saw the woman in the carriageway.
“Any information you’re able to provide – no matter how insignificant you think it is – could help our investigation, which is still in its early stages.”
Call 101, quoting incident 148 of 17 September.
