THREE people were taken to hospital and a man had to be cut from a car after a crash in Great Gidding on Thursday (July 4)
The accident, which involved a blue Renault Megane and a black Land Rover, happened on Winwick Road at around 4.40pm and led to the road being closed for more than three hours.
It took fire services over an hour working alongside paramedics and Magpas helimedics to remove a man from the Renault, having to cut the roof off of the car.
Helimedix sedated the patient and applied a splint, before accompanying him in a land ambulance to Peterborough City Hospital where he was in a stable condition.
A man and a woman in the Land Rover, both in their 60s, were taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital and were in a stable condition on arrival.

“Crews worked very well with all the emergency services on the scene to get the casualty out of the vehicle and into an ambulance as safely and quickly as possible.”
