The Suffolk police spokesman said fire crews and paramedics have been alerted and there may be some minor delays in the area as a result.
A fire brigade spokesman said they were called to reports of a 18-year-old male driver “heavily trapped” in the vehicle.
Firefighters gave first aid while they waited for paramedics to arrive at the scene.
Specialist cutting equipment is being used to help remove the drivers door and fold back the roof to release the man from the car.
A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service said the man is thought to have suffered a broken leg.
Meanwhile there are no reported major delays affecting the railways.
