A 50-year-old man from Ipswich has died after a crash in Cambridgeshire on Friday night (July 13).

Mitica Baiculescu, from London Road, was a passenger in a Volkswagen and died after a crash on the A1307 at Linton.

At about 9.15pm a black Volkswagen Passat and a blue Audi A3 collided outside Dalehead Foods in Cambridge Road.

The drivers of both vehicles and three passengers in the Volkswagen sustained serious injuries and were taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge where one person remains.

“I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or either of the vehicles in the moments leading up to it. “It happened around the time of a shift changeover at Dalehead Foods therefore there were a number of cars leaving the site around the time of the collision.

"I am particularly keen to hear from any employees who were leaving or arriving at the site around this time.”
