A MAN has been rushed to hospital with serious leg injuries following a crash near Houghton on Friday evening.

The casualty, believed to be in his 20s, was trapped inside a vehicle after it collided with another car on the A1123 Huntingdon Road.

Two fire appliances from Huntingdon and St Ives and a rescue vehicle attended the incident at 8pm. The man, thought to be the driver of one of the cars, was cut out of the car.

He was then taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge by land ambulance, where his condition was described as stable. Magpas medics Dr James French and Jo Lambert were also at the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle and a passenger sustained minor injuries.

That evening at 4.50pm firefighters also had to cut a lorry driver out after his vehicle overturned on the A14 near Alconbury.
