THREE people have been taken to hospital after a road crash on the A11 in Suffolk.
It happened on the northbound stretch of the road, near the junction with the B1112, at about 7.45pm and involved a black Honda Civic and a grey Vauxhall Astra.
Emergency medical charity Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) attended the crash.
A spokesman for the charity said two US servicemen based at RAF Lakenheath, both aged 21, were in the Honda Civic.
The passenger was transported to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge while the driver was treated by the SARS volunteer doctor at the scene and then taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds.
The driver sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries including a suspected fractured pelvis. He was freed from the wreckage of the Civic by the fire service.
A spokeswoman for the ambulance service added how another casualty had been taken to West Suffolk Hospital and a fourth casualty with a minor injury was treated at the scene.
A crew from Mildenhall, along with a fire appliance and rescue vehicle from Bury St Edmunds, also attended the scene.
