A 76-year-old man was taken to hospital after a crash between a car and a tractor on the A14 this weekend.

Emergency services were called at about 8.10am on Saturday, October 1, to the eastbound carriageway at junction 50 for Creeting St Peter, after reports of a two-vehicle collision.

A witness reported seeing the tractor trailer "on top of the car”.

Both carriageways were initially closed, with the westbound carriageway reopening first.

The eastbound carriageway remained closed for several further hours.

Four appliances from Suffolk Fire & Rescue were sent to the scene from Ipswich East, Princes Street, Debenham and Needham Market.

An East of England Ambulance Service Trust spokesman said: “Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle and the air ambulance were sent to reports of a road traffic collision on the A14 around 8am this morning.

"One patient, a male aged 76, was taken to Addenbrookes Hospital by road.”

On Sunday afternoon, a police spokesman said the man had not suffered life-threatening or life-changing injuries in the crash.
