A LEARNER driver was flown by air ambulance to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, after a crash half a mile from the notorious blackspot of Elveden crossroads.

The green Suzuki Swift she was driving with her instructor, was in a head-on collision with a Vauxhall Astra on the B1106, at 1.25pm yesterday.

Both people had to be released from the vehicle by firefighters after an hour.

A blue Rover Metro which was following the Suzuki also collided with the Astra.

Air ambulance crew of Andy Batts, Jason Gillingham and Nick Broad treated the woman who suffered multiple fractures to an arm and both legs, a serious head injury and possible pelvis, abdomen and chest injuries.

Her instructor was also taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital by the East Anglian Ambulance Trust.

His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The drivers of the other two vehicles were taken by ambulance to the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds, with minor injuries.

Two immediate care doctors attended the scene - one from the Norfolk and one from Suffolk Accident Rescue Services.

A police spokesman said: "We are in the process of carrying out an investigation into the crash and would appeal for anyone with information to get in touch."
