A man was airlifted to hospital with ‘life-changing’ injuries after a serious accident on the A1101, near Lackford, this morning.

His car is thought to have been involved in a collision with a cement lorry shortly before 7am.

Fire crews freed him from the car and he was then treated by members of the East of England Ambulance Service and volunteer doctor Jeremy Mauger from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS).

A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) said: “We were called at 6.45am to a collision between a car and a cement lorry. The driver of the car, who we believe was in his 20s, suffered multiple trauma injuries including an open ankle fracture, arm, and face injuries.

A SARS spokesman said the man suffered ‘serious’ injuries and was transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, by the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

The EEAST spokewoman said he was in a ‘serious condition’ and suffered ‘life-changing’ injuries.
