A man has suffered “life changing injuries” in a collision which shut a main road in Peterborough last night.

Police were called at 8.50pm on Thursday December 1 to reports of a collision involving a Chevrolet Spark and an off-road mini motorbike in London Road, Peterborough.

The Magpas air ambulance landed at the scene in the Fletton/Hempstead area and a man in his 20s was taken to hospital with injuries that are believed to be “life changing.”

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust said: “A rapid response vehicle was on scene in two minutes followed by an ambulance crew, ambulance officer and response car from Magpas.

“They treated a man in his 20s who had suffered a broken pelvis.

“He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital by land ambulance for further treatment.”
