DC Garrett, a serving police officer for Cambridgeshire police, had been driving a Renault Clio along the A141 at 4.35pm when she was fatally injured in a collision with a Peugeot 407, a Hyundai i20 and two lorries near the Broughton junction.

The driver of the Hyundai was treated for minor injuries.

A 26-year-old lorry driver, from King’s Lynn, was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital with slight injuries. After he was discharged, he was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

He was interviewed at Thorpe Wood Police Station, Peterborough, and has been bailed until August 19.

DC Garrett joined Cambridgeshire police in 1991 and served in a number of roles across the force, including most recently in the Economic Crime Unit investigating complex fraud offences.

She leaves behind her husband Adrian, also a serving Cambridgeshire police officer, and their two children.

Chief constable Simon Parr said: “Detective Constable Sharon Garrett was an exceptional police officer and will be truly missed by all of the many friends and colleagues who she had within the constabulary.

“The death of Sharon in such tragic circumstances is so incredibly sad. My condolences and heartfelt sympathy go to her husband, children and immediate family but also to the many friends and colleagues who will feel the loss of such an exceptional person.”

Pc James Thorne, investigating, said: “I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision, or who saw any of the vehicles prior to it, to call police.”

INFORMATION: Anyone with any information should call the Roads Policing Unit on 101.
