Earlier in the day there had been another two-vehicle collision on the B1116.

A van and a car collided head-on on the Laxfield stretch of the carriageway at about 12.12pm.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance was called to the scene and took the car driver to the James Paget Hospital at Gorleston.

The van driver was taken to the same hospital by ambulance.

Their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

Meanwhile two accidents today brought traffic to a standstill on Suffolk's roads.

The first happened at Hadleigh at about 7.20am. Two vehicles were involved in collision on the A1071, near to the junction with Lady Lane.

One of the vehicles, a Ford Fiesta, ended up in a hedge as a result of the accident. A Suffolk Police spokeswoman said the car's driver was reported to be uninjured but shaken.

Traffic was held up for more than half an hour as a result of the accident.

About an hour later a car overturned on the A12 Martlesham bypass, between the roundabout near Suffolk Police headquarters and the first Woodbridge roundabout out of Ipswich.

The female driver was taken by ambulance to Ipswich Hospital.

The accident brought northbound traffic to a standstill causing long tail backs until about 9.30am.

However, delays were expected later in the day when work was due to take place on repairing the central reservation damaged in the crash.
