ONE driver has been killed and another two people seriously injured following two separate accidents last night (Monday) near Royston.

A driver was killed in a crash on the A507 near Buntingford yesterday evening and another was seriously injured, while another driver is in a critical condition following a separate incident on the A505.

Emergency services attended the crash on the A507 after a blue Citreon Saxo collided with a silver Vauxhall Corsa at around 6.30pm, but the driver of the Saxo was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Corsa sustained serious head injuries and was taken to Addenbrooke’s for further treatment last night.

Emergency services were called to the Litlington junction of the A505 near Royston before that after a separate incident involving a Ford Fiesta and a Volkswagen Golf left the driver of the Golf with serious injuries.
