Update: Two people hospitalised following serious two-vehicle crash in Strumpshaw not in “life-threatening” conditions
Two people who were rushed to hospital with 'time critical' injuries this morning are now not in 'life threatening' conditions.
The pair were seriously injured in a crash in the Broads village of Strumpshaw, near Brundall, shortly before 10.50am.
Long Lane was closed both ways close to the Cuckoo Lane junction because of the crash, involving a Ford Ka and a Land Rover Freelander, that left five people trapped and injured.
One person was airlifted to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and another was rushed by land ambulance, both with what have been described as 'serious injuries'. The other three people had also received treatment for minor injuries.
Fire engines from Earlham and Sprowston were sent to the scene and used hydraulic rescue equipment to release the casualties, before making the scene safe and assisting the ambulance and police crews.
