Woman, 71, injured after Fiat Punto collides with mobility scooter on A141
A WOMAN riding a mobility scooter was today injured in a collision with a car on a busy Fenland road - leaving a councillor to direct traffic.
The woman, 71, was crossing the A141 at Wimblington, at the junction of King Street, just after 4pm when she was involved in a collision with a Fiat Punto.
Councillor Rob Skoulding and another passer by took control of the vehicles travelling on the A141 near Wimblington whilst paramedics attended to the woman, from Hook, who suffered an ankle injury.
Cllr Skoulding was travelling home from Ely at the time of the incident. He said: “I was three cars back, around 400 yards away, when I saw the brake lights and a cloud of smoke and we all came to a halt.
“When I got out to see what had happened to see if I could help, there were nearly some more accidents. There were some near misses so myself and another gentleman decided to sort out the traffic until the police got to the scene.
“Luckily, a bus driver pulled up and handed me a flourescent jacket and drove off. He and the other gentlemen did their part for the community which was nice to see.
“It just shows that we have a strong community spirit round here.”
