Police are appealing for information about a collision which has left a woman in a critical condition following a collision on the A14 last night (Monday).

The woman, who is in her 40s, was driving her blue 2007 plate Ford Fiesta on the A14 eastbound at Stow-cum-Quy, towards Newmarket, at about 6.20pm when she was involved in a collision with a lorry which was parked up in a lay-by.

Sergeant Simon Goldsmith, from the Beds, Cambs and Herts Road Policing Unit, said: "We are keen to speak with any motorists who were on that stretch of road around the time of the collision in order to help us establish the series of events.

"I am particularly keen to identify the driver of a lorry who we believe pulled out of the lay-by just moments before the collision. There was also a lorry parked up which was carrying two tractors."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Road Policing Unit by calling 101 and quoting incident 357 of October 29.
