Emergency services were sent to a serious two-car crash in Ipswich last night.

One car was on its roof when rescue teams arrived at the scene in Foxhall Road, close to the recycling centre.

The incident happened at 10.48pm and involved a Citroen C4 carrying a woman in her 40s and a teenage girl, and a Ford Mondeo with two men in their late teens.

Three Ipswich fire crews were sent to the scene and firefighters released one person trapped in a car.

Four patients were treated by the ambulance service.

An air ambulance was sent to the incident, as well as a volunteer critical care paramedic from Suffolk Accident Rescue Service.

The female in her 40s and one of the men were taken to Ipswich Hospital with chest injuries, with the teenager in a serious condition.

The teenage girl was taken to the hospital with an arm injury, while the air ambulance medics treated the fourth casualty.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said the incident was under control by 11.25pm.

However the road remained closed until 3.50am for recovery and police investigation work.
