Crash outside Ipswich school

A CRASH outside an Ipswich school has left one person in hospital today.

AN Ipswich street was back to normal today after an accident left a car on top of a bollard.

One person was taken to hospital following the crash involving a blue Ford Galaxy and a silver Daewoo outside Ravenswood Primary School in Ravenswood Avenue, Ravenswood, around 12.40pm.

The Galaxy ended up perched on top of a bollard and emergency services were called to the scene.

Graham West, who saw the aftermath of the smash, said: “There were eight or nine emergency vehicles so it was a bit busy.

“It was cleared within an hour, and fortunately there are other ways round for traffic so it didn't cause too many problems.”

Elsewhere, two drivers and a bus load of passengers had a miracle escape last night after a crash involving two coaches left debris scattered across a motorway amid the twisted metal of the stricken vehicles.

The collision happened shortly before 5pm on the A11 close to Barton Mills, near Mildenhall, and involved an empty bus and another packed with passengers.

Three people were thought to be hurt - and just one suffered serious injuries.

The male driver of a coach owned by Canterbury-based Lehane Travel Ltd, which was full at the time, was taken to the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds with a serious knee injury.

He was said to be in a comfortable condition in hospital.

The other coach, belonging to West Row Coaches Services, in Bury St Edmunds, was empty except for the driver, who was uninjured in the crash.
