Two women have been freed from their car and airlifted to Addenbrooke’s after a Ford Transit and VW Tiguan collided on a major Suffolk road.
Police, paramedics, volunteer paramedics and four crews from Suffolk Fire and Rescue service were all called to the A143, between Great Barton and Ixworth, after a van and a car collided.
The crash has closed the road while the scene of the accident is cleared, close to the crossroads of Heath Lane and Cutters Lane.
Two people were trapped in a vehicle and cut free by firefighters, removing the door of the vehicle.
They were airlifted to hospital with serious injuries and another two taken by ambulance with injuries not believed to be life threatening.
The male driver of the Ford Transit was unhurt.
A Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) spokesman said: "A volunteer critical care team was mobilised to a serious road traffic collision on the A143 this afternoon, July 22.
"The SARS team treated the two female patients at the scene before they were airlifted to hospital with multiple serious injuries.
"Another two patients were believed to have suffered non-life threatening injuries and were taken to hospital via land ambulance."
The road remains closed as officers continue to carry out their investigation.
