Firefighters have urged motorists to be mindful of mud on the road after two collisions in almost identical locations near Witchford.
Firefighters from Ely and Littleport were called to a collision on the A142 at Witchford at about 3am on Friday morning following reports that a BMW had left the road and landed in a ditch.
Firefighters used specialist cutting equipment to release one male casualty.
Crews returned to their stations by 4.30am.
The same two crews also attended another road traffic collision in the same location at 6.20am.
Two vehicles were involved this time and two casualties, who were left with the ambulance service, were safely out of their vehicles on our arrival.
The fire service made the vehicles safe and returned to their stations by 7.05am.
A fire service spokesperson said: “We would urge drivers to take extra care on the roads at the moment.
“On some of the rural roads in East Cambridgeshire especially there appears to be a lot of mud, making driving conditions sometimes difficult, particularly in the morning.
“It’s also worth reminding motorists to properly clear their windscreens before they set off on their journeys.”
