Police have identified a woman who died on Thursday (April 9) from injuries sustained in a serious collision on the A142, near Witchford.

Audrey Collins, 93, of High Street, Haddenham, was driving her Ford Fiesta when it was in collision with a Ford Focus at the junction with Sutton Road at about 12.40pm on Sunday, April 5.

Audrey and her passenger, a 91-year-old woman, also from Haddenham, were both taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital with minor injuries and released later that day.

On Wednesday (April 8), Audrey’s neighbours noticed her curtains had been closed for some time and became concerned for her wellbeing. They soon entered her home where they found her unconscious.

She was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, but died on April 9 from a bleed on the brain which was attributed to the collision.

The driver of the Focus, a 34-year-old woman from Chatteris and her passenger, a 38-year-old man, also from Chatteris, both suffered minor injuries.

Collision Investigator, PC James Thorne, said: “Sadly Ms Collins died four days after the collision, from injuries directly attributed to the incident.
