Stowmarket: Driver’s legs and arm broken in crash

A man remains in hospital with several broken bones today following a collision between a car and a lorry in Stowmarket.

The driver of a Subaru Impreza was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in a life-threatening condition following last night’s crash.

His condition is now said to be improving, though his injuries are serious and include two broken legs and a broken arm.

The crash happened at about 7pm in Needham Road, Stowmarket, and left the car driver - thought to be in his 50s and from Needham Market - trapped inside his vehicle.

Fire crews from Stowmarket, Elmswell, Needham Market and Princes Street, Ipswich arrived at the scene, on Stowmarket Business Park, just after 7pm.
