A MOTORIST was injured when their car ploughed into a building and closed a busy town centre road in Ipswich.

A MOTORIST was injured when their car ploughed into a building and closed a busy town centre road in Ipswich.

The accident happened around 11pm last night in Star Lane, on the corner of Fore Street.

A red Seat Cordoba collided with a building and two people are believed to have been treated for minor injuries.

A structural engineer from the borough council was called to assess the damage to the property, which appears to be empty.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said a decision was made to close Star Lane completely because it was feared that if a heavy lorry went past the vibrations could cause the property to collapse.

One lane of the road was re-opened in time for this morning's rush hour and the bus lane was also used for general traffic to help ease congestion.
