Police say a motorist has been seriously injured in a three-vehicle crash tonight.

Lynn Road was closed in both directions between its junctions with Brickley Lane and Station Road, at Ingoldisthorpe, Snettisham and near Dersingham, for almost five hours.

Norfolk police were called to the crash, near the junctions of The Drift and Hill Road, Ingoldisthorpe, at 5pm.

They said a Ford Ka crashed into a fence, while a Ford Transit van and a Suzuki car were also involved in the incident.

Ambulance and fire crews attended. The firefighters were based at Heacham and Sandringham

The person described as seriously injured by police was travelling in the Suzuki car.

The East of England Ambulance Service said it treated three casualties after arriving at the scene at 5.02pm.

A spokeswoman for the service confirmed one person had been taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, in King’s Lynn.

She said the casualties included an elderly woman with “serious injuries” and a woman in her 20s, described as “conscious and breathing”.
