A pedestrian has been taken to hospital via air ambulance after a serious collision in Long Melford.

Police have said that the man is conscious in hospital, but has suffered serious head injuries.

Emergency services were called to Church Walk at around 10.45am today following reports of a collision between a car and a pedestrian.

A police spokesman said the pedestrian, a man, had suffered head injuries in the crash.

It is not clear yet how serious his injuries are, but he has been taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge via air ambulance, the spokesman added.

The A1092 is now back open in both directions – police had closed it at the High Street turning in Long Melford, between the B1066 towards Glemsford and B1064 for Liston and Foxearth.

Police shut the road for several hours, and asked drivers to avoid the area, and re-opened it at around 2.20pm.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called at 10.46am with reports of a collision in Church Walk, Long Melford.

“We sent an ambulance, two ambulance officers and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

“One patient was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital by air ambulance for further treatment.”
