Three people were freed by firefighters after a crash in Godmanchester yesterday (Sunday).

The East of England Ambulance Service were called to London Road - near Wood Green Animal Shelter - at 3.14pm, followed by one fire crew from Huntingdon and one from Gamlingay at 3.21pm. Police also attended after the crash between the black Kia Rio and black Toyota Auris.

Medical crews including two ambulances, two hazardous area response team (HART) vehicles, and an officer assessed nine patients.

One young girl suffered from a suspected broken leg and was treated by Mapgas Helimedix Doctor Nathan Howes and paramedic Keir Rutherford. The team, who arrived via the charity’s rapid response BMW, sedated her and worked with the other services to remove her from the vehicle she was in.

A spokesman for EEAST said that her condition did not appear to be life-threatening and she was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, for further care. On arrival, she was in a stable condition.

The remaining patients were assessed at the scene for minor injuries.

Police closed the road and it was reopened at about 5.15pm.
