THREE people including a child were taken to hospital today following a serious road accident on the A14 near to the Rowley Mile service station on the Cambridge-Suffolk border.

A five-year-old girl was airlifted to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge with multiple injuries and a man and woman were also taken to Addenbrooke's by road. Their injuries are not yet known but are not thought to be life threatening. Their condition has been described as 'stable'.

All three emergency services were called to the scene shortly after 1.30pm.

The single vehicle accident happened on the westbound carriageway of the A14 near to the junction of the A142, a known accident blackspot.

A van travelling towards Cambridge is believed to have lost control and overturned.

Three lanes of the carriageway were blocked while paramedics treated the casualties and police made the area safe. The road was reopened by the early evening.

Police closed a road close to Addenbrooke's Hospital to enable the air ambulance to land close to the accident and emergency department.

The air ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, two ambulances, two doctors and an ambulance officer all attended.

Three fire crews from Newmarket and Cambridge had to release one male casualty from the vehicle.
