Lorry driver still recovering following serious crash on A1 near Peterborough

A lorry driver seriously injured in a crash on the A1 near Peterborough is still receiving treatment in hospital.

The man was driving a Warburtons bread lorry when he was involved in the three vehicle collision - which involved a car and another lorry - near Wansford at about 11am yesterday morning (Thursday).

He was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s hospital, and this morning a Cambridgeshire police spokesman said he had suffered ‘serious but not life threatening injuries.’

A spokesman for Magpas, whose Air Ambulance attended the scene, said: “The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed the patient (in his 20’s) who had sustained serious leg and foot injuries and gave him advanced pain relief at the scene (providing him with A&E level care). They then airlifted the man to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, where he was in a very serious but stable condition upon arrival.”

The road was closed in both directions for a number of hours while emergency services worked at the scene. The southbound carriageway was then able to open, before the road was fully re-opened at about 2pm.

No-one else suffered serious injuries in the incident.
