The driver of one of the cars involved in a head-on smash in Sandy at the weekend is in a coma, police have now confirmed.

The incident, which happened at about 6.30pm on Saturday, saw a silver Vauxhall Vectra and a silver Range Rover collide along the B1042 Potton Road.

A 37-year-old man driving one of the vehicles was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with life-threatening injuries, and he is now in a medically-induced coma.

A 50-year-old man was taken to Bedford Hospital with what police described as “severe injuries”.

A third man was treated for minor injuries at Lister Hospital in Stevenage, while a woman and two children were unharmed.

Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash, including those who have dash cam footage.

Sgt Stephen Andrews, who is investigating, said: “We would appreciate assistance from anyone who may have witnessed the collision to get in touch.

“We’d also like to hear from you if you saw the silver Vauxhall Vectra, possibly travelling in convoy with a black or dark coloured, unidentified car, before the incident.

“If any drivers have dash cam footage of the area at the time, that may hold vital information for our investigation.”

Anyone with information can call the force on 101, quoting reference 305 of October 20.
