Police name Soham woman killed in Godmanchester crash

POLICE have named a young woman who was killed in a crash close to Wood Green Animal Shelter last night (Thursday).

Ashlee Page-Bennett, 22, of Mill Corner, Soham, died as she was travelling in a Ford KA when it collided with a Volkswagon Golf at 9pm on the A1198 at Godmanchester.

Magpas Helimedix Doctor Simon Lewis and paramedic Jo Lambert administered pain relief to the 18-year-old driver of the Ka, also from Soham, who suffered neck and back injuries in the accident. Another passenger in the Ka, an 18-year-old from Soham, was treated for minor injuries. Both were taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

The driver of the Golf, a 19-year-old from Godmanchester, suffered minor injuries in the crash and was also taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital but was discharged later.

A Magpas spokesman said: “Sadly, despite all the Magpas team’s best efforts, one woman died at the scene - our thoughts are with her family at this time.

“A paramedic and an ambulance crew were also present, everyone worked extremely well together. A Papworth nurse and a paediatric nurse, who were stuck in nearby traffic, also stopped to assist and were incredibly helpful.”

Sergeant Steve Watson, investigating, said: “I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or who saw either vehicle in the moments leading up to the collision.”
