The actor suffered shoulder injuries as a result collision but managed to walk away from his vehicle, which had set ablaze, and wait for an ambulance.

A spokeswoman for the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said, "Crews brought the fire under control by 8.13pm. They made the vehicle safe and used one hose reel to put out the fire.There was one casualty but he was not trapped".
