Two motorists including a man in his 70s were in hospital last night after a two-vehicle crash near Bury St Edmunds.

Firefighters cut free two trapped drivers from the wreckage of a head-on collision involving a silver Honda Civic and a silver Honda Accord on the A134 shortly after 10.30pm.

The injured motorists, also including a woman thought to be in her 50s, were taken by land ambulance to West Suffolk Hospital.

Both suffered injuries not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said.

The man was driving the Accord, while the woman was in the Civic.

The road was closed between the Cullum Road and Hawstead Lane junctions for several hours following the incident before it re-opened at around 3am.

Three fire engines were called to the scene.

A Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “Crews used hydraulic cutting equipment to release two people trapped in the vehicles.”
