A MEDICAL team was flown to the scene of an accident at Rings End near Guyhirn on Wednesday morning after two cars - one of them towing a caravan - collided.
One car went down the embankment and a male patient trapped had to be cut free by the fire service.
A Magpas spokesman said the man, a 38-year-old from Leverington, sustained a broken leg and was sedated at the scene before being taken to Peterborough Hospital. His condition was later described as stable.
Dr Mark Folman from Magpas flew to the scene on the A141 aboard Anglia 2 accompanied by Magpas paramedic Tim Hayes and Dan Cody, a paramedic with the ambulance trust.
Police, paramedics, fire crews, Magpas and the air ambulance were all on the scene.
The A141 was closed for nearly four hours time while crews cleared the wreckage and drivers were urged to avoid the area and diversions put in place.
Fire crews from March, Wisbech, and a rescue vehicle from Dogsthorpe in Peterborough attended.
A 48-year-old man was also taken to Peterborough District Hospital with minor injuries after the collision, which involved a four-wheel-drive vehicle towing the caravan and a silver Ford Mondeo.
Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward. Pc John Maer, investigating, said: “I am trying to find out exactly how this collision happened. I would like anyone who may have seen anything to contact police.”
