Car flips onto side during crash on flooded area of A14
A car rolled onto its side during a crash on a flooded part of the A14 in Suffolk this morning.
One lane of the westbound carriageway in Bury St Edmunds was shut following the collision involving a Fiat 500 shortly before 6am.
The driver – believed to be a man – suffered injuries that were not thought to have been serious.
A spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary said the road in the area of the crash was severely flooded due to heavy rainfall and blocked drains.
Three fire crews – two from Bury St Edmunds and one from Elmswell – attended the scene along with police and ambulance crews.
