The collision happened on the B1061 at Sipsey Bridge, close to Great Bradley at 8.11am. It involved a red Audi 80, blue Ford Focus and a yellow JCB.

Five casualties were treated at the scene by crews from the East of England Ambulance Service, the East Anglian Air Ambulance, a Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) and the volunteer doctor from Suffolk Accident Rescue Service.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were also in attendance and helped with the extrication of several of the patients.

A Cambridgeshire Constabulary spokesman said the driver of the Audi, a man, suffered fatal injuries at the scene. He added the force had no further details on the man at this time.

SARS doctor, Fiona Virgo, who attended the scene, said: “On coming across the scene on my way to work it was immediately apparent that this was a significant incident which was made more complex by the JCB being on top of the vehicle. There were many emergency personnel present at the scene who all worked together in a very challenging incident environment.”

A woman in her thirties was treated for neck and chest injuries. She was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
