A MAN was cut free from a car this morning after his vehicle collided with a lorry on the A14.
Emergency services were scrambled to the A14 westbound between junction 52 for Claydon and junction 51 for Needham Market after an accident involving an HGV lorry and a Toyota Avensis just after 7.45am.
A Suffolk police spokeswoman said: “The car had gone into the central reservation about 200m past the Claydon junction.

The casualty was treated for neck and shoulder pains by a medic at the scene while firefighters removed the car’s roof as a precautionary measure.
