Update: Man in hospital after being freed from wreckage of two-vehicle crash near A120

19:33 14 February 2013


A MAN is in hospital after firefighters freed him from the wreckage of a two-car crash on the outskirts of Colchester this evening.


Emergency services are at the scene on the A1232 at the Ardleigh Interchange.

The accident is understood to have happened close to the junction with the A120 at 6.16pm.

Three crews from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service are working to release a man trapped in the wreckage.

A spokesman for Essex Police said one casualty has been taken to Colchester General Hospital.

He added: “His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening at this time.”

The road was closed for some time, while the emergency services worked at the scene.



Fears were raised over the impact the strikes would have on A&E departments.

Strike action by thousands of junior doctors has been suspended so talks can continue, the Government and the British Medical Association (BMA) have announced.
