Police have appealed for witnesses following a road crash at Great Bromley today in which two people were seriously injured.

Officers were called to the A120 at Great Bromley shortly after 11am following reports of a two-vehicle collision which had blocked the road.

All three emergency services attended at the scene to discover that a white Audi A3 and a red Hyundai I20 had been involved in the incident.

The road remained closed while firefighters released two casualties from the Hyundai.

A 73-year-old woman from the Colchester area was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridgeshire.

A 77-year-old man, also from the Colchester area, was taken to Colchester General Hospital. Both are being treated for serious injuries. The driver of the Audi received slight injuries.

The Colchester-bound carriageway was reopened at 1.40pm and the eastbound shortly afterwards. Police enquiries into the circumstances of the accident are continuing.

Any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police should contact the investigating officer, Pc Rob Elvin, at Stanway road policing office on 101.
