Firefighters were called to Parkhall Road, in Somersham, shortly before 6pm, to reports of a Mini Cooper that had landed in a ditch.

Crews from Huntingdon and Chatteris released a man who was trapped in the car. He was cut free by 6.46pm and was left in the care of the East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST).

A spokesman for EEAST said: “An ambulance, two rapid response vehicles and Magpas Air Ambulance attended and treated a man in his 20s with a reduced level of consciousness and other injuries.”

The man was then taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital for further care.

At 6.36pm, firefighters attended another collision in Wood Lane, Ramsey, where they freed a person involved in the incident from a Robin Hood kit car that had collided with a tree.

A crew from Ramsey and another from Papworth were called to the scene and returned to their stations by 8.24pm, after leaving the driver and their passenger in the care of the ambulance service.

“Two ambulances, the Magpas medical car and an ambulance officer attended and treated two patients,” a spokesman for EEAST added.

“One with a leg injury and one with a suspected chest injury were both taken to Peterborough City Hospital for further care. Both patient’s injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.”
