Three ambulances and several fire crews were called to a serious collision in Elsenham yesterday involving two vehicles, including a Lamborghini, which had left the road and crashed into a ditch.

It is understood that a Lamborghini was in collision with another vehicle containing a man, a woman and a child on Hall Road around 3pm.

Following the collision, both cars left the road, crashing into a ditch running along the side of the road.

The air ambulance was in attendance, along with three ambulances and a rapid response vehicle.

A specialist road traffic accident forensic unit arrived and made multiple laser scans of the accident scene that can later be used to make a detailed 3D reconstruction to be used in the investigation.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: “We were called shortly after 3pm yesterday with reports of a collision involving a Lamborghini and a Daihatsu Sirion in Hall Road, Elsenham.

“A woman, child and man in the Daihatsu were treated at the scene by paramedics and the man was then taken to hospital with multiple injuries.”

Firefighters said that one male was trapped in a vehicle down an embankment and they worked to release the casualty by 3.50pm.

Fire crews from Stansted, Dunmow and Newport attended the scene.

A spokesman for East of England Ambulance Service said: “A rapid response vehicle, three ambulances, an ambulance officer and the Essex & Herts air ambulance attended the scene.

“Three patients were taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital by land ambulance for further treatment.”
