Woman hurt in serious crash on A14

A WOMAN was being treated in hospital last night after a serious crash closed part of the A14 in Suffolk for more than five hours.

Police officers and paramedics were called to the collision, near the Nacton turn-off, just outside Ipswich, shortly after 12.30pm yesterday.

A Nissan Micra was in collision with an articulated lorry in the eastbound carriageway, trapping two people in the car.

Firefighters from Princes Street and Colchester Road fire stations were forced to cut off the roof to free the duo inside.

A Suffolk police spokesman said that an “elderly woman”, from the Woodbridge area, suffered “severe head injuries” and was kept in Ipswich Hospital overnight for observation. The road closure caused chaos as thousands of motorists had to use Ipswich’s town centre.
