A man died at the scene of a collision between a car and a tractor on the A1101 in Welney yesterday.

The collision took place between the A10 junction and the B1100 New Road junction in Welney, near Littleport.

Magpas Helimedix provided life support for the man after they flew to the scene at 11:38am but sadly the driver of the car, aged 29, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Cambridgeshire police confirmed the driver of the tractor did not suffer any injuries.

A spokesman for Magpas said: “The team provided advanced life support for the patient, whilst working alongside two East of England Ambulance Service Trust crews, an EEAST ambulance officer and a fire and rescue crew. Sadly, despite all their best efforts, the man was pronounced dead at the scene, our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.”

The accident resulted in long queues on the A1101 on Saturday as the road was closed in both directions.

Cambridgeshire police were called to the scene at 11.34am.

Three crews from Cambridgshire Fire and Rescue Sevice were also in attendance.
