They received the call via the East of England Ambulance Service Trust at around 4.40pm and the road was closed shortly after.
A spokesman for the ambulance service said: 'Two ambulance crews and a medical response car from the East Anglian Air Ambulance charity were dispatched to assist and treated a man, believed to be in his 20s, for a suspected fractured leg and wrist, and back pains.
