Maria Villota in Marussia F1 Crash

BBC news is reporting that a female test driver (presumably Villota) has been injured when a Marussia Formula 1 car crashed into a stationary lorry at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford.

BBC Cambridgeshire presenter Chris Mann said the car had completed a circuit when it "suddenly accelerated" into the back of the lorry which is believed to have been used to transport the car to the track.

Marussia had begun two days of F1 testing at the site.  Emergency services were called to the scene.  No news is available as to the extent of her injuries.

My thoughts are with her and the team. I hope she's alright.
