Trimley: Crash victim out of coma
A MAN left critically injured in crash which killed his partner and her grandson has emerged from a coma after five weeks.
Phillip Wall has been in intensive care at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridgeshire since the day of the crash on the Felixstowe-bound A14, near the sliproad to the Trimley interchange.
Mr Wall, who is in his 60s, suffered critical injuries in the pile-up when the car he was travelling in was in collision with two 38-tonne trucks.
A Suffolk police spokesman said he was now “conscious and talking” in hospital.
“Things are improving for him. It’s really good news,” he said.

Police road traffic experts have been investigating the cause of the accident, which blocked the dual carriageway and led to extensive diversions on the Felixstowe peninsula.
It was one of three incidents during the afternoon of August 20 on the A14 near Felixstowe – preceded by traffic congestion caused by an incident at the dock spur junction, and followed by a collision between two other lorries near Seven Hills.
