Two men who were airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injures after a crash are said to be in a “critical but stable condition”.

A 30-year-old man and a 51-year-old man, both travelling in a silver Ford Focus, were flown to hospital on Monday morning after colliding with a black Volvo XC60 in Norton Road, Letchworth GC.

The men, whose injuries were described by the ambulance service as “life-threatening”, are currently being cared for at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

A police spokesman has said both men were in a “critical but stable condition” last night (Thursday).

A 68-year-old man travelling in the Volvo suffered minor injuries in the crash, which occured shortly before 8am.

Police, who are asking for witnesses to come forward, believe the Focus lost control while negotiating a right-hand bend, striking the nearside kerb before colliding with the oncoming Volvo.

Anyone with information who has not yet spoken to police should contact me via the non-emergency number 101.
