A47 lorry and car crash sees three men seriously injured

Three men have been left with serious injuries after a car collided with a lorry on the A47. Police are now appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage following the incident.

Officers and paramedics were called to a lay-by on the eastbound A47 Thorney by-pass, at about 9.20pm on Friday (April 5). A grey Audi A4 S Line travelling eastbound collided with a stationary lorry parked in the lay-by.

The driver of the Audi, the front-seat passenger and a rear-seat passenger were taken to Peterborough[1] City Hospital suffering from serious injuries. The lorry driver was uninjured.

A 29-year-old man, from March, was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving whilst unfit through drink. He has been bailed until Friday, July 5.

A 35-year-old man, from St Neots, was arrested on suspicion of failing to appear before the courts. He was remanded in custody to appear in court today (April 8).

Any witnesses who saw either the collision or the Audi in the build-up to it or has dashcam footage should report it[4] through the force website using reference 35/23820/24.
