A nine-year-old girl who was injured in a collision on the A14 has thanked ambulance crews from Huntingdon, after they were reunited at their base last month.

Lucy Grossman and her family were travelling down the busy road near Hemingford when the incident happened, leaving the youngster needing treatment for shock and facial injuries.

After arriving on scene, paramedic Nathan Latimer and emergency medical technician Kelly Thompson looked after Lucy and her family.

Jenny Grossman, Lucy’s mother, said: “The crews were fantastic on the day, it was a really scary time for us but they did everything in their power to keep us calm whilst making sure Lucy was okay.”

Having made a full recovery, Lucy and her family visited Nathan and Kelly at their base in Huntingdon on October 30, where they were also given a tour of the station and taught basic life support skills.

Jenny added: “Lucy has been going on non-stop about this visit, we’ve just got back from a holiday but she was more interested in coming to the station.”

Lucy, who lives in Ely, is said to have enjoyed the visit and hopes to join the medical profession herself one day by becoming a doctor.
