Alpheton: Ford Transit crashes off road and lands in a field

09:58 10 July 2014

Archant

A van has ended up in a field after a single-vehicle crash.

The incident happened just before 9am between Alpheton and Bradfield Combust.

A police spokesman said a Ford Transit had “flown over a hedge” and ended up in the field.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said they sent an ambulance and a rapid response care to the scene where a man in his 20s was complaining of chest and leg injuries.

He was assessed at the scene and taken to West Suffolk Hospital as a precaution.

  • Can we have a translation of the meaning of the headline please, "For Transit crashes of road and lands in a field". Could we hazard a guess that Archant have handed over the writing of this & many other articles to local school leavers & work experience students. This appears to have all the classics of our failing local education system that Archant are happy to demand is improved, perhaps they should set an example & properly check articles prior to printing rather than just rely on a basic spelling check & nothing more.
