THREE young women were taken to hospital with shock and minor injuries from this head-on crash.

Reader Dick Soper took the picture of the accident’s aftermath near his home in Cobbs Hall Road, Great Saxham, on Wednesday.

It involved a Nissan Micra, left, and a Citroën Picasso, which were both seriously damaged in the impact, but the women were saved from serious injury by the cars’ airbags and seatbelts.

Police said the trio were badly shaken and were taken to hospital by ambulance after treatment at the scene.

The road was completely closed, with a diversion in place, while the wreckage was cleared.
