A teenager from Soham is believed to have been among those injured in a hit-and-run incident in the centre of Cambridge on Friday.

Officers had attempted to stop a blue Fiat Punto in Hills Road at 11.52pm on Thursday, but the driver sped off.

The vehicle careered off the road a short distance later, at its junction with Station Road, mounting the pavement and colliding with four teenagers.

A 17-year-old from Soham, and two other boys, also aged 17, suffered serious, but not life-threatening, leg injuries and were taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, for treatment. A teenage girl was also injured.

All four were celebrating after collecting their AS Level results from Long Road Sixth Form College.
