A YOUNG child has died following a serious accident this evening which left two others in hospital.
The tragic incident happened just after 7.10pm today when a black Jaguar and a white Renault Clio collided on the B1063, Newmarket Road, between Cheveley and Ashley, near Newmarket.
A man, believed to be the father of the child, was trapped in the car but eventually freed.
He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital with multiple serious injuries, which required a doctor to travel with him in the ambulance.
The other driver was also taken to the same hospital to receive treatment for minor injuries.
