A woman is in hospital after being freed from the wreckage of a serious crash by firefighters near Long Melford.
Emergency services were called to the A134 Long Melford Bypass at around 8.35am today following reports of a two-vehicle accident.
Firefighters were forced to cut free a woman from one of the cars involved after a green Land Rover and a black Renault Clio collided, forcing the road to close in both directions for around three hours.
A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said the woman suffered a suspected fractured pelvis and a minor back injury and was being taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds after being cut free by firefighters.
It is not believed she has sustained life-threatening injuries.
Police closed the road in both directions between Acton Crossroads and Rodbridge Corner before it was reopened at 10.45am.
