Two people were taken to hospital as a result of the collision.

Paramedic officer, Scott Ballam who attended the scene said: “Two casualties were treated at the scene and a number of others were assessed. A man in his 40s was treated for potential spinal injuries and a woman for a minor head injury. Both were conveyed to West Suffolk Hospital for further treatment.

  • Let's hope the two taken to hospital recover quickly. The sooner that new road is open the better!
