A driver aged in his 20s is in a critical condition in hospital after a serious crash on the A14 in Suffolk.

Suffolk police were called at 1.45am on Friday, April 10, following reports of a collision on the eastbound carriageway of the main road, close to junction 52 at Claydon.

A red BMW 320D, reportedly travelling the wrong way on the carriageway, was in collision with a blue Ford Fiesta travelling in the correct direction.

The driver of the Ford Fiesta sustained minor injuries which required hospital treatment.

Both cars suffered significant damage to their front ends in the collision.

Officers are asking for anyone who witnessed the collision or has dash-cam footage relevant to the incident to contact Suffolk police on 101, quoting CAD 21 of April 10.
