Ipswich: Traffic flowing on A14 after crash

Traffic is flowing normally on the A14 following an eight vehicle collision earlier.

Two small trucks, a tractor, a van and four cars collided on the eastbound carriageway at 2.38pm today.

All the vehicles remained upright but one person was trapped by a damaged door. Three fire crews from Princes Street and Colchester Road used specialist equipment to free the casualty, who was released from the vehicle shortly after 3pm.

Police are still on the scene of the crash, between Nacton and the Seven Hills interchange, and two of the damaged vehicles have been moved to the roadside.

The A14 has been re-opened to traffic but traffic coming into Ipswich in Felixstowe Road remained heavy.
