The A605 between March and Whittlesey was closed while paramedics provided treatment to the driver.

An ambulance service spokesman said: “The child was OK and called 999.

“The adult, a man, was reported to be trapped but was out of the car when ambulance crews arrived.”

The child who called for help was in a car which was being overtaken at the time by the car which subsequently left the road and turned over.
