Injured paramedics treat man after ambulance and Mercedes collide in Whittlesey

INJURED paramedics helped treat a man in Whittlesey on Friday after the ambulance they were travelling in was involved in a collision with his car.

The two men were responding to an emergency call when their vehicle was involved in the accident with the Mercedes at about 9.10am on the A605 in King’s Dyke, Whittlesey.

They treated the driver - who was cut out of his vehicle by firefighters - at the scene before the trio were taken to Peterborough City Hospital with minor injuries.

An East of England Ambulance spokesman said the vehicle was on its way to a ‘Category B’ emergency call to deal with a patient with burns in Whittlesey. Another ambulance was quickly diverted to attend the incident.

Police and fire crews from Whittlesey and Stanground and a rescue vehicle from Dogsthorpe also attended the two-vehicle collision.
