A man has suffered life-threatening injuries and been taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital after being involved in a collision with a cement mixer.
The man was sent to the Cambridge hospital after the collision on the A1101, near Flempton, this morning.
Emergency services were called just after 6.50am after a collision between the victim’s red Honda Civic and a cement mixer.
The man ended up being trapped in his vehicle, with Suffolk Accident Rescue Service and the East Anglian Air Ambulance being called and Suffolk Police closing the road.
He was freed from the car and taken to Addenbrooke’s with leg, arm and head injuries, where he currently remains. His injuries are thought to be life threatening at this stage, according to a police spokesman.
The road remains closed while vehicles are recovered and a collision investigation begins.
Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision or the Honda prior to the collision to contact the Roads Policing Unit on 101.
