Crashes cause rush hour traffic chaos

ROAD users faced traffic delays around Ipswich after two collisions caused chaos.

Emergency services were called to the westbound carriageway of the A14, approaching the Orwell Bridge, after an accident which saw a car strike the central reservation.

The collision left one lane blocked and commuters were stuck in tailbacks as they attempted to reach Ipswich.

It happened close to the Shell Garage at the Nacton interchange around 6.20am and involved a lorry and a red Mini Cooper.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said there were no serious injuries and the road was cleared by 8.30am.
