Two people were injured in the three-car collision in Redbourn this morning.

The Magpas Air Ambulance landed at 7.48am at the scene of a crash in Hemel Hempstead Road, with Magpas doctor Natalie Lonsdale, paramedic Steve Chambers and doctor Tom Odbert on board.

Two patients were assessed at the scene. One, a man in his 40s, was left in the care of an East of England Ambulance Service paramedic crew.

The second patient, also a man in his 40s, had sustained multiple, serious injuries. The Magpas medics provided him with pain relief before airlifting him to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge in a very serious but stable condition.

The patient and medical team were flown by the Magpas helicopter crew, made up of chief pilot Richard Eastwood and crew member George Phillips.

The ambulance service, fire service and police also attended.
