Three killed on Cambridgeshire's roads

The deaths of three people on Cambridgeshire’s roads in the last three days have sparked a police appeal for witnesses.

The latest crash happened yesterday when a 27-year-old man from the St Neots area lost control of his Kawasaki ZX6R motorbike on Toseland Road, Croxton about 600m north of its junction with the A428.

The man, who has not been identified, was heading south when he left the road at about at 1.30pm. No other vehicle was involved.

On Saturday, a 58-year-old man from the Ely area was killed in a two vehicle crash.

A BMW M3 and a Perodua MYVi were involved in the incident at around 10am, leaving the Perodua in a ditch.

The cars collided on the Isle of Ely Way, known as the Chatteris bypass, close to the Wenny Road junction.

A 61-year-old woman from the Ely area, who was a passenger in the Perodua, suffered minor injuries.

The 43-year-old driver of the BMW and two passengers, a 43-year-old woman and a 14-year-old boy, all suffered minor injuries.

Emergency services rushed to the accident with the air ambulance, three road ambulances and a fast response vehicle.

The force of the collision spun the silver BMW while the Perodua ended up in a ditch.

Firefighters battled to free the Perodua driver and his passenger, and worked with paramedics to give medical attention.

And on Friday a 79-year-old man died after his car left a road and struck a tree.

The crash involved a silver Daihatsu Terios which left the B1063, and crashed into a tree near Ashley, near Newmarket close to the junction for Kirtling.

The collision occurred shortly before noon and the road was closed until 4.15pm.

Police are appealing for witnesses to all three fatalities. Call the roads policing unit on 101.
