Two women were released from their cars and treated by medics from the Magpas Helimedix air ambulance after a crash on the A1 near Wansford today (Saturday, June 7).

A woman in her 20s and a woman in her 30s escaped serious injury after the collision at 1.22pm this afternoon.

A spokesman for Magpas Helimedix said Dr Peter Holden and paramedic Keiran Bromley landed next to the A1, near the Wansford junction, in the air ambulance after the collision involving two cars.

She said: “One of the vehicles spun off the road, close to where another car had pulled over. Two women were assessed. Fortunately, neither of the patients suffered any serious injuries and were able to go home.”

The Helicopter team who flew the Helimedix to the scene was pilot Richard Eastwood and crew member George Phillips.

Police, a land ambulance and three fire crews were also called to the scene.
