Suffolk Constabulary was called to reports of the accident, involving a red Volkswagen Golf, shortly after 8.30am.

The driver was reported to have freed himself from the vehicle, however it was left blocking the road in both directions.

The road was washed and gritted before it was reopened to clear petrol that had spilled from the vehicle.
