A woman has been hit by a lorry in Huntingdon yesterday afternoon (Wednesday).

The 63-year-old pedestrian, from Huntingdon, was seriously injured in the collision in St Peter’s Road at about 1.11pm.

A spokesman for East of England Ambulance Service said: “The woman sustained serious injuries and following treatment and stabilisation by paramedics and the Magpas critical care team, she was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, for further care.”

Magpas Helimedix said the woman was in a critical condition when she arrived at hospital.

Police said on Thursday morning, she was in a critical, but stable, condition.

Officers blocked the road between the Towerfields roundabout and Redwongs Way and motorists were warned the closure may by in place for some time.

INFORMATION: Anyone who saw the incident should call Sergeant Chris Clare on 101.


  • Thoughts are with the lady and her family, hoping she gets better. To agree the guy in the white shirt at the roundabout did a great job of easing the traffic.

    Blocks Away

  • Just to note that there were a number of people at the scene who did as much as possible to aid, long before the emergency services arrived. I was a number of cars further down St Peters Road and did not witness anything other than a number of sensible people who got out of their cars and blocked the road to stop further congestion, explained to people why the road was blocked and 'held the fort' until the emergency services arrived. Well done to them, especially the guy in the white car at the McDonalds roundabout who kept traffic moving by blocking the road with his car to stop rubber neckers.... I am sure this all helped the professionals reach the scene and deal with the unfortunate victim[s]... Credit where it's due !
