An 18-year-old is in hospital with serious injuries following the crash

An 18-year-old is in hospital with a serious head injury after crashing his Alfa Romeo in the Suffolk countryside, police have said.

The teenager, thought to be from the Ipswich area, was taken to hospital after the yellow Alfa Romeo flipped over on to its side in Rands Road, Layham, near Hadleigh, shortly before 2.30pm today.

It is thought it was a single-vehicle incident.

He sustained a wound to the head, a knee injury and other cuts and bruises, and was taken to Ipswich Hospital by land ambulance.

His injuries have been described as serious but not life-threatening or life-changing by spokesmen from Suffolk Constabulary and the East of England Ambulance Service.

The 18-year-old was conscious when emergency crews arrived and was placed on a spinal board and taken to hospital at around 3.45pm.

Police believe no other vehicles were involved in the collision and that the teenager is from the Ipswich area.

The road remains partially blocked following the incident, which will be investigated by Suffolk Constabulary’s serious collision investigation unit.

  • Hmmm... A teenager in a powerful car, no other vehicle involved... Nothing to do with recklessness then?

The chief executive of national charity Mind has said leaders need to “turn rhetoric into reality” in order to truly bridge the gap between physical and mental health services.

A man collapsed after being taken ill on the outskirts of Ipswich town centre at lunchtime today.

There have been calls for common sense over a series of partial road closures around Stowmarket, which are causing congestion on several main roads.

As a search continues at a landfill site in Milton in Cambridgeshire, police are confirming that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will be working alongside officers investigating Corrie McKeague’s disappearance.

In the months since RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague went missing after a night out in Bury St Edmunds, very little information has come to light.

Music therapy sessions shelved after a funding cut have been reintroduced after a business’ donation.

What better way to illustrate the relationship between siblings than with a cub fight between young foxes.

Children all over Suffolk will be proudly presenting their mums with flowers, chocolates and hand-crafted cards on Sunday as we celebrate Mother’s Day.
