DRIVERS on the A14 were faced with three-mile tailbacks last night after a multi-vehicle pile-up at the notorious Haughley Bends.
The crash, which involved three HGVs and one car, happened on the eastbound carriageway of the road at around 7.30pm.
It is believed that one of the articulated vehicles crashed through the central reservation and onto the westbound part of the road.
Two people – one lorry driver and the driver of the car – were taken to West Suffolk Hospital, but were thought to have suffered only minor injuries.

A spokesman for the police said the crash caused lengthy tailbacks before officers put diversions in place. It is not yet known what caused the accident.
The bends were long seen as one of the county's most dangerous accident blackspots before strict 50mph speed limits were enforced after years of safety campaigning by locals.
