Magpas fundraiser seriously injured after car careers into Cambridgeshire ditch
A MAGPAS fundraiser was treated by the lifesaving charity she supports this morning after her car careered off the road into a Cambridgeshire ditch.
The Helimedix team came to the aid of the seriously injured 48-year-old after she was left trapped in her car, which had flipped upside down into a ditch in Somersham.
The incident occurred just after 8am and the road was temporarily closed.
Paramedics requested specialist care from Magpas, who arrived in their land vehicle and helped free the woman.
Magpas doctors gave the 48-year-old strong pain relief and took her to the region’s Major Trauma Centre at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
