A man was airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries after a collision with a lorry on the A14 near Bury St Edmunds.
The collision happened on the westbound carriageway of the A14 at about 6.30pm, closing the road in both directions while the East Anglian Air Ambulance landed at the scene.
Suffolk Constabulary has described the injuries to the man as life-threatening and he was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, by air ambulance.
His condition is unknown at this time.
An ambulance spokesman said: “We were called to a road traffic accident on the A14 near junction 43 around 6pm last evening. One person was treated at scene and airlifted to Addenbrookes Hospital with serious injuries.”
Motorists were advised by Highways England to allow plenty of time for their journeys and consider alternative routes if possible.
The road has since reopened in both directions.
