The pedestrian, a 29-year-old man from Worcester, was taken by ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridgeshire, where he is being treated for a serious head injury.

The car driver, a 52-year-old man from the Colchester area, was not injured.

The road was closed until 4.20am while investigations were carried out and the scene was cleared.
