An appeal for witnesses has been made after a woman broke her arm and thigh when her car collided with a limousine and ended up in a dyke.

The incident took place at 3.25pm yesterday, Monday November 2, on the A1101 Mildenhall Drove at Kenny Hill.

A black Vauxhall Omega limousine travelling northbound was involved in a collision with a blue Ford Ka travelling in the opposite direction.

Both vehicles left the road, with the Omega rolling onto its roof and the Ka coming to rest at the bottom of a roadside dyke.

The driver of the Ka, a woman in her twenties, had to be freed from the car by fire service personnel.

She was taken to hospital having suffered a fractured femur and arm. The driver of the Omega, a man also aged in his twenties, sustained a broken ankle.

The road remained closed until 9.30pm while a collision investigation took place and the vehicles were recovered.
