Three people, including two pedestrians, have suffered serious injuries, some of which may be life-threatening, in a crash.
Emergency services were called to the crash, close to the Norfolk Showground, at just after 5pm on Friday (November 22).
The crash involved a car and two pedestrians and Norfolk police have said some of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
Firefighters from Carrow, Earlham and Sprowston joined Norfolk police at the Dereham Road crash, near the Premier Inn.
The East of England Ambulance Service and East Anglian Air Ambulance have also gone to the scene.
The road was shut in both directions and remained shut for several hours, with police urging motorists to avoid the area.
Norfolk police said access to Easton would have to be via the A47 Easton roundabout and Konectbus tweeted that the 6.15pm service 4 from Norwich would be unable to serve Easton.
The road has since re-opened.
