Appeal following fatal collision in Cambridge

27 Oct 2021
A woman has died following a collision in Cambridge yesterday (26 October).

The incident happened just after 6pm on the guided busway near Sedley Taylor Road, Cambridge, and involved a pedestrian and a guided busway bus.

The pedestrian, a woman in her 50s from Cambridge, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the bus was uninjured and remained at the scene. We do not know if there were any passengers on the bus at the time.

Police are appealing for witnesses, footage or anyone who saw the vehicles in the moments leading up to the incident.
