PART of the A65 was closed for more than eight hours on Tuesday following a crash involving three vehicles.
Two air ambulances were called and several people rushed to hospital after the cars collided at Newby, near Ingleton, at around 2pm.
The collision involved seven people in a Volkswagen Passat, a Skoda Fabia and an Audi A4.
Three of those involved were said to be in a ‘serious’ condition while one had ‘life-changing’ injuries.
A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said one driver was flown to the Royal Preston Hospital by air ambulance while two people were airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary.
Fire Service crews from Bentham, Kirkby Lonsdale and Settle attended.
They used hydraulic cutting gear, as two people were trapped in their vehicles, as well as various specialist tools and first aid equipment.
The road reopened at around 10.30pm.
