Traffic still slow after A14 crash

TRAFFIC has been halted on a stretch of the A14 following a multi-vehicle collision.

A POLICE car has been involved in a four-vehicle pile up in the A14 today.

A Nissan Micra car broke down on the Bury St Edmunds-bound stretch of the road near Needham Market at about 10am and the police car was sent to the scene to help.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: “It appears the police car which was attending was hit by another vehicle and then hit the broken down vehicle.”

She added that the car which struck the police car was a silver BMW, and that another car, a Skoda Octavia, had also been involved in the collision.
