The road was closed for some time as police and emergency services cleared the debris.

Magpas Helimedix flew to the scene of the collision to find a woman, in her 60s, trapped in the car with serious injuries to her lower body.

The Magpas team worked alongside a fire and rescue crew to remove the patient safely from the vehicle.

A Magpas spokesman said: “Our team sedated the woman and administered enhanced pain relief, whilst working alongside an EEAST Ambulance Crew and Rapid Response Paramedic at the scene.

The crash happened shortly after 2.30pm and closed the road between the roundabouts at the Mepal Outdoor Centre and at Sutton.

A police spokesman described it as a “serious-injury collision”.
