A man who was trapped inside a van which overturned on the A14 was taken to hospital in a stable condition, says a spokesman for life-saving charity Magpas.
The A14 had to be shut at the St Ives turn-off after the accident, thought to have involved a van and a lorry, at 12.21pm today.
The van ended up on its side on the eastbound carriageway and both lanes were blocked.
Fire crews were called as the driver, a man believed to be in his 60s, was trapped. He had suffered an injury to his arm.
Firefighters from Huntingdon and Cambridge worked with Magpas helimedix, who arrived in their air ambulance, and ambulance staff to free the man.
