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.

The crash happened between the Duncombe’s Road junction and the March Road junction, shortly before 4pm.

Police closed the road for a short time. Firefighters were also in attendance.

The driver is thought to have spent the night in hospital but returned home today (Fri).

If we are to encourage cyclists to use the roads, we need to make the roads safer and more welcoming. Much of this can be achieved by reducing the speed of traffic. Where there are 20mph limits in place, there is no excuse for cyclists to use pavements.
