A 29-year-old man has been charged after a crash in 2022 that left two police officers with serious injuries.

The two-vehicle collision, involving a grey BMW X5 and white Peugeot 308 marked police car, took place on the B1112 in Eriswell, near Mildenhall in west Suffolk, at about 1.10am on Sunday, September 25.

Emergency services, including a volunteer paramedic from Suffolk Accident Rescue Service, were called to the scene.

Two men, both police officers in the Peugeot 308, were taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge having suffered injuries that were considered potentially life-threatening at the time.

One of the injured police officers returned to work in September 2023, while the other is continuing with rehabilitation for his injuries.

The driver of the BMW was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving whilst unfit through drink or drugs.

He was initially taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds as a precaution, before being transported to Bury St Edmunds police investigation centre for questioning and subsequently released on police bail.

On Monday, Seth Ray, of Harebell Road in Red Lodge, appeared at Suffolk Magistrates' Court in Ipswich where he was charged with two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and one count of driving with excess alcohol.

He was also charged with one count of using a motor vehicle in a condition likely to cause danger of injury at an earlier hearing.

The case has been adjourned ahead of the next hearing at Ipswich Crown Court on Tuesday, March 19.
