Four people airlifted after crash on M11 near Cambridge
A car carrying four people rolled over on the M11 today (Thursday).
The crash happened at 10.30 near the motorway’s junction with the A11.
East Anglian Air Ambulance helicopter Anglia Two was taken to the scene by Captain Adie Love who landed the helicopter in a field next to the motorway.
Dr Troels Hanson and East of England Ambulance Trust Critical Care Paramedic Jemma Varela helped the land crews to immobilise and protect the patients’ spine so they could be transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
Critical Care Paramedic Jemma Varela said: “Considering this was a roll over at high speed there was potential for some very serious injuries, luckily it does not seem to be the case.

“All land and air medical teams worked together to give the patients the best possible pre-hospital care and we even had a group of military personnel stop on their way past to see if there was anything they could do to help.
“Incidents like this show just how important it is to get to the scene quickly in order to give patients the best possible care.”
