A woman seriously injured in a police collision was airlifted to hospital by Prince William in his final shift as an air ambulance responder. The Duke of Cambridge helped the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) rescue the woman when called to a serious crash involving Norfolk Police on Thursday (July 27). The woman had been walking on the Wymondham Road in Hethel when she was struck by a marked police van responding to a 999 call. She was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge where she is being treated for critical injuries. The case has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission. A spokesperson for the air ambulance said: “The EAAA crew, which last night included William, attended an incident south of Norwich which involved a road traffic collision-related inquiry, and a patient was treated at the scene for severe head injuries then treated at Addenbrooke’s hospital.”
