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.
