A woman in her 60s remains in a critical condition in hospital tonight after a car crashed into a tree in Suffolk on Saturday afternoon.

Emergency services were called to reports that a Toyota MR2 travelling along the A143 in Little Wratting left the carriageway and collided with a tree at around 2.35pm today (Saturday, November 25).

Firefighters helped free the driver from the vehicle.

Earlier on Saturday, Suffolk Constabulary said the driver, a 68-year-old woman, suffered potentially life-threatening injuries and was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

In an update on Saturday night, a force spokesman described the injuries as “life-threatening” and said the woman is in a critical condition in hospital.

The road also remains closed tonight as an investigation into the collision continues.

Police had been called to the scene by the ambulance service.

Any witnesses to the collision are urged to call the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101, quoting CAD 243 of November 25, 2017.
