Police are appealing for witnesses after emergency services were called to a crash involving two lorries on the A14 near Stowmarket yesterday.

Police were called shortly after 10.10am to reports of a โ€˜seriousโ€™ collision involving two lorries at junction 50, near the A1120 turn off for Stowmarket and Stowupland.

One of the lorries had crashed through the central reservation, causing extensive damage. The road remained closed until 12.50am this morning while recovery and repairs took place.

One of the lorry drivers, a 40-year-old man, was taken to hospital with serious injuries including broken ribs, a dislocated wrist and a fractured foot.

The other driver, also a 40-year-old man, suffered whiplash-type neck and back pain.

Police, Fire and Ambulance staff attended the crash and an air ambulance landed on the carriageway.

Anyone who saw the incident is asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101, quoting CAD number 90 of April 11.
