A motorist was rushed to hospital following a collision involving two cars near Alconbury on Monday.

The East of England Ambulance Service and Magpas rapid response paramedics were called to a stretch of the B1043, at Ermine Street, at about 6pm following reports of a collision in which a woman in her 20s had suffered leg injuries.

A spokesman for Magpas said: “The team assessed the woman who had sustained a leg injury and was trapped inside the vehicle. They gave her advanced pain relief to allow the Fire and Rescue Service to extricate her from the car.

“The team then accompanied the woman by ambulance to Hinchingbrooke Hospital. She was in a serious but stable condition upon arrival at hospital.”

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service crews from Huntingdon and Sawtry were also called to the scene and helped free the woman from the car.
