UPDATE: A14 re-opened after four-vehicle smash
THE A14 westbound has been re-opened after a four-vehicle collision.
Three lorries and a van collided between Godmanchester and Spittals interchange at 11.05am, causing both lanes westbound to be closed for nearly five hours.
At the peak of the congestion, traffic was queuing back to Cambridge.
The road was re-opened shortly before 4pm.
One fire crew from St Ives and two fire crews and a rescue vehicle from Huntingdon attended the scene and helped to cut a casualty from one of the lorries.
A team from Magpas Helimedix said they had treated a man in his 50s who had been trapped in his vehicle.
They helped to remove him from the lorry and provided him with pain relief before he was transferred to Hinchingbrooke Hospital by land ambulance. One other patient was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital, and his condition was described as stable.
