A driver was arrested last night (Saturday) on suspicion of drink driving after he crashed in a residential area of Wisbech and his car overturned.

The driver was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn accompanied by police officers.

One report – not confirmed by Cambridgeshire Police – is that the car hit another car and a van before crashing and overturning.

The crash happened at around 7pm in St Michael’s Avenue; residents say the car is believed to have come from Bath Road before heading into St Michael’s Avenue and crashing some 100 yards along on the corner of Bramley Road.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said they were called at 7.11pm and attended together with fire crews from Wisbech and the East of England Ambulance Service.
