Two vehicles were involved in an accident on Branch Bank road – the same road that claimed the life of a 20-year-old man just under two weeks ago.
A white Peugeot van and a blue Citroen were involved in a collision along Branch Bank road in Littleport at around 5.30pm on Monday, causing the road to be closed for two hours.
A police spokesman said: “At around 5.30pm we were called to reports of a two vehicle collision in Branch Bank Road.
“The collision involved a white Peugeot Partner van and a blue Citroen C3.
“An ambulance was called to the scene but there is no further information about injuries.
“The road was closed for around two hours while the vehicles were recovered.”
The accident comes just 12 days after 20-year-old Jahmel Rashane Grant was killed in an accident along the same road, which is considered to be one of the most dangerous roads in the country by residents.

One resident, David Jermy, has witnessed 13 crashes along the road in just 10 weeks due to cars “not adjusting their speed to the conditions.”
Mr Jermy, who moved to the area in April, says he is “certain” that more fatalities will occur unless the Highways Agency enforce a 40mph speed limit or install speed cameras.
