Badwell Ash – Renewed appeal following serious road traffic collision

Police are renewing an appeal for witnesses to come forward following a serious road traffic collision in Badwell Ash yesterday.

Officers were called shortly after 10.30am yesterday, Thursday 30 July, following reports that a van – a white Ford Transit - had left the road and collided with a tree in Badwell Road.

Emergency services attended the scene and the driver, a man aged in his 20s, was flown by air ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital after sustaining life-threatening injuries. He remains in hospital in a critical condition.
