UPDATE: Police confirm 58-year-old man killed in two car crash on Chatteris bypass on Saturday
The man, who police said was from the Ely area, was the driver of one of the cars and according to Magpas he “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.”
A Magpas spokesman said the driver was confirmed dead at the scene but a female passenger, aged 61 and also from the Ely area, sustained a chest injury.
“She was treated with pain relief by the Magpas team and they then accompanied her in a land ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital,” said the spokesman.
“On arrival her condition was described as not serious.”
