At around 4.30pm yesterday Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Vijayasankar and Paramedic Carl Smith) arrived in Newmarket in the Magpas Helimedix Air Ambulance.
The Magpas team assessed all those involved and treated a man in his 40s, who was a passenger in one of the vehicles. They immobilised, administered pain relief and then escorted him in a land ambulance to Addenbrooke’s hospital, where on arrival he was in a stable condition.
The other patients were also taken by land ambulance to Addenbrooke’s.
