Police have appealed for witnesses following a serious three-car crash on the A505 near Royston.


A nine-year-old boy remains “in a serious condition” in hospital following a three-car crash on the A505 near Royston yesterday, and police have now appealed for witnesses.

The incident happened yesterday at about 5.25pm – and involved a red BMW 330, a black BMW X5 and a red Kia Rio.

A 31-year-old woman and 31-year-old man sustained pelvis injuries, while a nine-year-old boy was said to be suffering from neck pain.

All three were taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, where police today said that all three “remain in a serious condition”.

Another man was taken to Stevenage’s Lister Hospital with a suspected fracture of the collarbone.

Sgt Steve Andrews from the Beds, Cambs and Herts Road Policing Unit said: “I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or events leading up to it, to please get in touch.

“The collision happened at a busy time of day so it is likely that there are many witnesses who can help us establish exactly what happened.

“If you have dash cam footage that might be useful to our investigation, I would also like you to get in contact.”

An East Anglian Air Ambulance landed following the crash. The fire service also attended as two of the people were trapped, and police closed the road between the McDonald’s roundabout and the A1198 roundabout until after midnight.

Anyone with information should contact Sergeant Steve Andrews or PC Fraz Niwaz at the BCH Road Policing Unit via the non-emergency number 101, quoting ISR 561 of March 13.
