Cockfield: Car collides with van and catches fire in ditch

TWO people escaped with only minor injuries after a car collided with a van and left the road before catching fire in a ditch.

The crash happened just after 6pm on the A134 at Cockfield, near Bury St Edmunds.

Fire crews from Melford, Sudbury and Bury arrived soon afterwards to find a commercial van had collided with a car which was on fire, but the driver had escaped in time.

A second person was meanwhile trapped inside the van.

Both casualties, who suffered only minor injuries in the crash, were taken to West Suffolk Hospital in the same ambulance.
