Man airlifted to hospital after two-vehicle crash in March

A pensioner was airlifted to hospital this afternoon after his car was involved in a crash with a lorry.

Clive Christian, 78, was driving from his home in West End, March, to Sharman Fabrications in Gaul Road, also in March, when the crash happened on the A141 at 2pm.

Firefighters cut Mr Christian out of his blue Audi which had been bent by the force of the impact with the grain lorry.

Ambulance crews then tended to Mr Christian by the roadside before the East Anglian Air Ambulance arrived and took him to hospital.

The incident caused traffic chaos in March, with Gaul Road closed and vehicles backed up along the A141.
