Two people were left seriously injured after a three vehicle crash at Doddington Road, Chatteris, this morning.
At 8.35am, a Magpas air ambulance arrived on the scene - where one vehicle ended up in a field and another was off the road on the opposite carriageway - to treat two people who had been injured in the collision.
Magpas doctor Maria Smith and paramedic Dan Read assessed a woman in her 80s who had suffered a serious leg injury.
The team sedated the woman, providing A&E level specialist care, before accompanying her by land ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
The patient was in a stable condition on arrival.
A second patient had also suffered serious injuries in the collision and was treated by EEAST Ambulance Service paramedics.
The helicopter team who flew the Magpas doctor and paramedic to the scene were pilot Andy Figg and crew member George Phillips.
Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue and Cambridgeshire Police were also in attendance.
