A 17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of drink driving following yesterday’s collision in Wimblington Road, March.

A police spokesman confirmed the youth was taken to the King’s Lynn Police Investigation Centre following the two vehicle crash, which left two women trapped in their overturned car in a ditch.

He was later released on bail to return on October 6, but the spokesman said it is unclear at this time whether any other arrests were made.

The spokesman also confirmed that one of the women suffered serious injuries and it is feared she may have life changing injuries as a result of the crash, which happened at 3.17pm.

Police closed the road for some time while emergency services including the crew from the Magpas air ambulance dealt with the collision, which involved a green Lexus IS200 and a silver Renault Clio. The crash occurred at the junction with Hook Drove and police closed the road from the Saxon Way at the junction with the A141.

The two women were trapped in the Renault and had to be freed by fire crews using cutting equipment.

A police spokesman said shortly after the incident that a 19-year-old man and a 17-year-old youth were detained by officers immediately following the collision. Two other people left the scene.
