The driver of a pickup truck, which overturned in west Suffolk this morning causing the road to be blocked for several hours, has been taken to hospital with serious injuries.

A volunteer doctor from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) charity was called to the scene on the B1106 at North Stow around 6.15am.

The man driving the white pickup truck involved in the incident is thought to be an American serviceman in his twenties.

According to police, he was ejected from the truck when it overturned and he suffered multiple serious injuries.

He was subsequently accompanied in an ambulance by the SARS doctor to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, where he remains in a serious condition.

The B1106 was blocked to traffic in both directions between the Brockley Corner junction in King’s Forest, North Stow and the Elveden Crossroads in Elveden.

Suffolk Police confirmed that long diversions were put in place around the area.
