Collision between bus and car causes heavy congestion in Norwich
There was very slow traffic on the A11 Newmarket Road into Norwich during rush hour this morning after a bus and a car collided.
Around 7.55am the crash was reported to the emergency services and ambulance, police and fire services rushed to the scene, at the junction with Upton Road.
Medical treatment was required for an elderly woman but any injuries are thought to have been slight and the fire service only cut the roof off of the Nissan Micra involved as a precautionary measure.
The congestion has eased now after a recovery vehicle arrived at the scene at 9am and the recovery vehicle for the single-decker bus arrived at 9.09am, although damage at the scene still needs some attention.
Fire engines from Carrow, Earlham and Sprowston attended to extricate one casualty using hydraulic release equipment and carry out scene and vehicle safety checks.
