Two people were treated for injuries after a police car en route to an incident was involved in a crash in Ipswich.

The marked police car was responding to a report of an alarm sounding and suspicious activity at a property in Raeburn Road when it was involved in a collision with a Citroen C4.

The male police officer driver and the male driver of the Citroen were both treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to Ipswich Hospital.

The police officer received whiplash injuries while the driver of the Citroen suffered a broken pelvis.

Firefighters used hydraulic cutting gear to cut the roof off the Citroen to rescue the trapped occupant.

A police spokesman said the incident happened at around 10pm yesterday on Landseer Road near to the Rivers Social Club.

Two crews from Ipswich East and two from Princes Street fire stations attended.

Fire crews completed dealing with the incident by 11.15pm.

An investigation into the collision is taking place. Any witnesses to the incident are asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101.
