The A1 has re-opened following a collision at Wittering earlier today.

The crash happened on the southbound carriageway in a lay-by near the RAF base at about 10.37am.

It is believed a car collided with a lorry.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: “The East of England Ambulance Service Trust was called to a road traffic collision on the A1 near Wittering Peterborough at 10.30 this morning (Tuesday 31st March).

“An ambulance, a Magpas Medical team car, two rapid response vehicles and an ambulance officer attended and treated a man in his 40s.

He was extricated from the vehicle and taken to Peterborough City Hospital with minor injuries.”

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service were assisted by Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service at the scene.

Station Commander Gavin Hammond, from Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “This was a difficult extrication for fire crews owing to the seriousness of the collision. Emergency services worked tirelessly together to complete a successful rescue.”

The crash happened close to the scene of a fatal incident yesterday, which also saw a car collide with a lorry in a lay-by. Yesterday’s crash happened on the northbound carriageway.

Witnesses are asked to call Cambridgeshire police on 101.
