A teenage motorcyclist who suffered serious injuries to his neck and windpipe after he hit a rope that had been tied between two trees has been named as Connor Calahane-Toon.
The 16 year old, of Princes Drive, St Neots, was rushed to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge and is currently in a medically-induced coma to enable him to recover from his injuries.
Police have confirmed the teenager is still in a critical condition and is expected to remain in the coma until the beginning of next week.
The incident happened on Friday, April 24, at 5.30pm in a wooded area next to a farmer’s field in Howitt’s Lane, close to a railway bridge and Henbrook Park.
Detective Constable Tom Nuttall said: “Connor is still in a very serious way and I am determined to get to the bottom of what happened in that woods on Friday. I would like to speak with anyone who may know why the rope was tied to those trees, or who may have put it there.
