Emergency services were called to a collision involving a car and a lorry on the eastbound carriageway of the A14 near Beyton yesterday.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Police said they were called at 5.30pm to reports a small hatchback had drifted into the side of a lorry, overturned and landed in the middle of the carriageway on the A14 at Beyton.

She said the car involved was a Citroen C4 and one person was injured when it overturned and landed on its roof.

The inside carriageway was clear from 6.15pm but the A14 did not fully reopen until after 7pm.

A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said a crew from Elmswell and two from Bury St Edmunds were called to an accident on the A14 at Thurston shortly before 5.30pm.

He said there had been one person in the car at the time of the collision but they were out of the vehicle and walking around by the time crews arrived.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service Trust said they were called at 5.25pm to reports of a crash on the eastbound carriageway of the A14 at Elmswell.

He said one man, believed to be in his 30s, was treated at the scene for a minor head injury and taken to West Suffolk Hospital for further treatment.
