A lorry driver airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries after his truck overturned in Felixstowe is in a stable condition, police have said.
Emergency services including the Essex Air Ambulance were called at 7.24am on Wednesday to Dock Gate Two on the A154 Trinity Avenue to treat the driver, believed to be a man in his 50s, for serious head injuries.
He was taken by air ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
A spokesman from the East of England Ambulance Service had confirmed he was in a life-threatening condition.
But today, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said: “He is now in a stable condition and is no longer in a critical condition.”
Further details about the lorry driver or incident have not been released.
Suffolk police officers closed the stretch of road for most of the day – including the roundabout for the dock gate while recovery was under way and a large diesel spill was cleared, before it was opened shortly after 5pm.
Anyone who witnessed the incident should call police on 101.
