TWO vehicles have left the same stretch of an icy Suffolk road in two separate accidents today.

Following the first crash at 8.30am Suffolk police officers warned Suffolk County Council's highways department about the dangerous conditions on Lower Road in Onehouse, near Stowmarket.

But at about 9.10am another vehicle left the road, ending up in a field.

The first accident happened when a silver Mitsubishi pick up truck left the road near the Stowmarket Golf Club and overturned on the road's verge. No one was hurt in the smash.

Police officers and paramedics were called to the scene, and noted the icy conditions of the road.

The police then contacted council road chiefs, but the road was not closed.
