A man was left in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion after suf­fer­ing a car­diac ar­rest at the wheel on a Peter­bor­ough park­way.

The man was driv­ing along the Frank Perkins Park­way at Boon­gate when he suf­fered the med­i­cal in­ci­dent on Thurs­day.

The road was closed be­tween Boon­gate and East­field Road in both direc­tions from 9am to 11am to al­low the Mag­pas air am­bu­lance to land to pro­vide vi­tal first aid. A sheet was put up around the medics to al­low them to work safely and in pri­vate.

A po­lice spokes­woman said they were called at 9.10am to re­ports of a sin­gle ve­hi­cle col­li­sion and that the driver had gone into car­diac ar­rest, but was now mak­ing progress. The po­lice were un­able to pro­vide any more up­dates about the man’s con­di­tion. A spokes­woman for the East of Eng­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice con­firmed a man had suf­fered a car­diac ar­rest.
