A car hit a tree in Kirton Road, Trimley St Martin this morning – but police have now re-opened the road.

When police arrived they believed the crash may be serious so they closed the road, which is an exit slip road off the eastbound A14.

Paramedics were also there after being called at 10.55am and ambulance crews treated one patient for what are now understood to be minor injuries.

The road was completely closed but a police spokeswoman has now said traffic is able to flow through it and that recovery has been arranged for the vehicle.

She said: “We were called to reports of a serious road traffic collision in Kirton Road, Trimley St Martin, at around 10.55am today.

“The person’s injuries are not as serious as officers at the scene originally thought and therefore the road has been re-opened to allow traffic to pass through once again.

“A car hit a tree and the person inside suffered minor injuries. They were treated by paramedics at the scene.”

Elsewhere in Suffolk, heavy rain has been causing traffic problems.

Two lanes are currently closed on the eastbound A14 in west Suffolk at junction 45 while Highways England repair the carriageway.
