A14: Significant delays on road near Bury St Edmunds after JCB overturns
15:50 26 August 2014
A man has been taken to hospital after being left in the middle of the A14 following a crash in west Suffolk.
A volunteer doctor from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) charity was mobilised to the collision between Barrow and Risby at around 1.10pm.
The crash was between a lorry and a JCB grain loader with the loader overturning and ejecting its driver onto the central reservation, a SARS spokesman said. A lane of each carriageway was closed but they reopened at around 4.55pm.
The SARS doctor treated the driver of the grain loader who was a male patient in his fifties.
The spokesman said: “He was subsequently taken by land ambulance to the West Suffolk Hospital for further checks. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. A crew from the East of England Ambulance Service also attended the incident.”
Repair work to the central reservation will close a lane of each carriageway overnight.
