A man was taken to hospital after he was involved in a two-vehicle crash near Ipswich town centre today.

Emergency services were called to the collision in Stoke Street involving a Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Octavia just after 4pm.

A man was trapped in his vehicle as a result of the crash and required help from firefighters to get free.

The motorist was taken to hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing, a spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary said.

No-one else is thought to have been seriously hurt.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) sent three fire engines - one from Ipswich East and two from Ipswich Princes Street - to the scene.

A spokeswoman for the brigade said: “There was one person who was trapped in their vehicle and SFRS assisted in removing them from the vehicle and making the scene safe.”

The East of England Ambulance Service also attended and has been approached for information.
