TWO DIE IN ROAD TRAGEDIES
There has been tragedy on the region’s roads as two people have been killed in separate crashes on Fenland routes .
The first crash happened on Saturday afternoon when 18-year-old Olivia Mary Carter was driving a Nissan Micra which was involved in a collision with another car.
The second fatal accident happened on Tuesday afternoon in Warboys, when a man in his 20s died when his car crashed into a water filled ditch.
Now police are appealing for witnesses to both incidents to come forward to try and piece together what happened, and what caused the crashes.
Miss Carter’s crash hap- pened on the B1101 March Roadat Friday Bridge at about 4.15pm.
Miss Carter, of Friday Bridge, Elm, collided with a Citroen Saxo, and despite the best efforts of emergency services to save her, she had suffered fatal injuries.
The driver of the Citroen, a woman in her 20s from Kings Lynn, and her passenger, a man, received serious but not life threatening injuries and were airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital for further treatment.
Fire and rescue crews also attended the incident, to help release three people from the cars and ensure the scene was made safe.
The road was closed following the incident to allow the work to be carried out.
The second fatal crash happened in Puddock Road, Warboys, at just after 5.30 pm on Tuesday.
The driver is thought to have lost control, and the car left the road and entered a water-filled ditch.
The car was submerged under the water, and the man was unable to escape.
A Cambridgeshire police spokesman said: “One person, a man in his 20s, died in the crash. No one else was in the car.”
It is not thought any other vehicles were involved in the collision.
The road was closed by police officers while the emergency services worked at the scene.
Police have not yet identified the man who died in the crash, or said what car the man was driving.
Witnesses, or anyone with information about either of the two crashes, are asked to call the Cambridgeshire Police’s Roads Policing Unit on 101.
