Women dies following A142 smash

A 71-YEAR-old woman has died from injuries she sustained in a two-vehicle smash on the A142 earlier this month.

Gillian Read, of The Green, Wardy Hill, was rushed to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge following a collision at the Witcham Toll junction at about 7.30am on February 14.

She died as a result of her injuries nine days later.

Mrs Read was a passenger in a silver Peugeot 206 when it was involved in a collision with a white Toyota Hiace van.

The air ambulance was called to the scene and the busy main road was blocked in both directions, with police forced to set up a diversion through Wardy Hill and Coveney.

The driver of the Peugeot, a 72-year-old man, suffered serious injuries in the collision. The driver of the van was treated for minor injuries.

PC Theron Pearman, investigating, said: “I would appeal to anyone who saw the collision, or either vehicle prior to it, to call police.”
