DRAMATIC pictures of a three-vehicle collision in which one woman was trapped and a child escaped uninjured have been released.

The 48-year-old woman suffered serious injuries after the car she was travelling in ended up upside down in a ditch when it collided with another car and an HGV at 8.10am today in St Ives Road, Somersham near the Windmill Tavern.

The casualty is a supporter and fundraiser of emergency medical charity Magpas, and Magpas paramedics joined ambulance crew to tend to her.

Firefighters from St Ives and a rescue vehicle from Huntingdon were also called to the scene. They released the casualty, who had neck injuries, and she was then taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital by land ambulance.

Another casualty, described as walking wounded, was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

Daryl Brown, Magpas Chief Executive said: "This incident highlights the need for our team of dedicated Magpas volunteer doctors and paramedics to be available whenever needed across the East of England. Our thoughts are with this patient and their family."
