A 58-year-old man killed in a two-car collision on the A142 on Saturday has been named by police.

Vaughn Alan Tuck, 58, of Wood Lane, Stretham, died after the Perodua MYVi he was driving was involved in a collision with a BMW M3 on the A142 Chatteris bypass, just north of its junction with Wenny Road.

The collision happened shortly after 10am on Saturday (May 12).

Emergency medical charity Magpas said the 58-year-old “suffered a traumatic cardiac arrest at the scene of the incident.”

“Sadly, despite the Helimedix best efforts providing advanced life support, there was nothing more they could do for him.”
