Stowmarket Road in Great Blakenham was closed on Saturday night after a car left the road and crashed into a house.

The driver of the car suffered serious injuries and was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital at Cambridge where her condition was said to be critical on Saturday night.

Police, fire appliances, ambulances and the air ambulance were called to the scene after the collision which happened shortly after 9pm on Saturday.

Only one vehicle was involved in the accident which closed the B1113 Stowmarket Road for some time during the evening.

A total of four fire appliances were called to the site from Ipswich, Needham Market and Stowmarket and they remained at the scene for some time.

Although an air ambulance was called to the incident, the driver was taken to Addenbrooke’s by a road ambulance.

A police spokeswoman said the road was closed and there was not immediate indication of how long it would be before the B1113 was reopened to traffic because structural engineers were having to complete a survey of the damaged house before it could reopen to traffic.
