This was the scene after the emergency services released a man who had been trapped in his van after a collision on the A1(M) this morning.
Fire crews from Huntingdon, Sawtry and Stanground were called to the accident, which happened at 8.30am on the A1 southbound between Sawtry and Alconbury.
The crash involved two small lorries, a van and a car.
Firefighters had to cut a 30-year-old man out of the van and he was free by 8.50am.
They worked alongside medics from the ambulance service and life-saving charity Magpas, who sedated him and gave him A&E-style care.
