Nr Abbots Ripton, serious 2x car collision – Magpas called to the scene
At 7:45pm last night (19th) Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Zoe Smeed and Paramedic Dan Cody) arrived at a location near Abbots Ripton via a Magpas Rapid Response BMW. Two cars were involved in a serious road traffic incident. Both vehicles left the road and ended up in a nearby field – leaving five people trapped inside the cars.
The Helimedix worked alongside Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Crews, EEAST Ambulance Service Paramedic Crews and a HART Crew to remove the patients safely from the vehicles. The Magpas team assessed a woman (in her 50’s) who suffered chest injuries. A team from East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) arrived at the scene by rapid response car and continued to treat this patient, before accompanying her to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in a serious but stable condition by land ambulance. Two people also suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were treated by the Ambulance Service Paramedic Crews.
Sadly, despite all the best efforts of the medical teams, two people were pronounced dead at the scene. Our thoughts are with their family and friends at this time.
Cambridgeshire Police were also present.
