A woman is in critical condition after she was involved in a collision with a lorry which was parked up in a lay-by on the A14.

The crash happened at Stow-cum-Quy last night (Monday October 29).

The woman, who is in her 40s, was driving her blue 2007 plate Ford Fiesta on the A14 eastbound towards Newmarket at about 6.20pm when the crash happened.

Sergeant Simon Goldsmith, from the Beds, Cambs and Herts Road Policing Unit, said: “We are keen to speak with any motorists who were on that stretch of road around the time of the collision in order to help us establish the series of events.

“I am particularly keen to identify the driver of a lorry who we believe pulled out of the lay-by just moments before the collision.

“There was also a lorry parked up which was carrying two tractors.”

Anyone with information should contact the Road Policing Unit by calling 101 and quoting incident 357 of October 29.
