A CYCLIST was taken to hospital with a head injury today after being involved in a collision with a car outside Ipswich.

The accident happened at around 8.45am on Wherstead Road near the dry ski-slope.

The cyclist was taken to Ipswich Hospital with a head injury, the severity of which was not known at the time of going to press.

Elsewhere, two people were left trapped in their cars after separate road accidents in Suffolk last night.

Firefighters were called to Capel St Mary at around 7.20pm where there had been a car accident at Mill Hill.

They managed to release the person who was trapped. The male driver, who comes from Essex, was taken to Ipswich Hospital for a check up but was uninjured in crash.

Two hours later, three crews and two ambulances were called to Beacon Hill at the junction of the A140 and A14 at Coddenham Road.

A dark blue Ford Fiesta was involved in a head-on collision with a white Vauxhall Nova which was travelling out of Needham Market on the B1078.

Four teenaged males from Needham were in the Vauxhall Nova, and one had to be cut free from the wreckage by firefighters at about 9.30pm.

A Suffolk Accident Rescue Service doctor arrived at the scene at 9.45pm.

The 18-year-old motorist was released by 10pm and taken to hospital facial injuries and bruising to his arm.

Two of his three passengers were also injured and were taken by ambulance to the Ipswich Hospital. One passenger received throat injuries, not thought to be life threatening, in the smash. The other received a hand injury.

The 39-year-old male driver of the Fiesta, from Sudbury, was uninjured.
