A WOMAN was in a stable condition in hospital yesterday (Wednesday) after a two-car smash on the A505.

The 30-year old from Cottenham suffered serious injuries in the incident, which happened on Saturday at 5.45pm at the junction of the A505 and New Road, the turning for Melbourn.

She was said to be in a critical condition in the immediate aftermath of the incident. However, a spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said that her condition had become stable.

The woman was a passenger in a Volvo 850 T5, which was in collision with a Vauxhall Vectra near the junction.

Two other passengers in the Volvo, a 26-year old man and a 20-year woman, both from Cottenham, suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries in the incident.

The driver, a 56-year old woman from Cottenham sustained minor injuries, as did the driver of the Vectra, a 33-year old man from Haverhill.

All the victims were taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital.

Sgt Gareth Williams said: "I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or saw either of the vehicles in the moments leading up to the incident."

Anyone with information should contact Sgt Williams at the roads policing unit on 0845 4564564.

This is the latest in a number of road accidents to have occurred on the A505 in recent months.

In December two motorists were taken to hospital with serious injuries following a collision at nearby Chrishall Grange.
