A LORRY driver has been transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital with serious head injuries following a crash today.
The man, who is in his 40s, was in collision with a silver Toyota Avensis after stepping out of his lorry at the roadside to ask for directions outside Bosch Lawn and Garden Ltd, in Gipping Way, Stowmarket, at about 7am.
He was taken by ambulance to the West Suffolk Hospital, Bury St Edmunds, but later transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital where he remains in a serious condition.
Police closed the A1308 to drivers and diversions were put in place, taking traffic through Combs Ford, which caused serious problems for drivers heading into the centre of Stowmarket during the morning rush-hour.
The road re-opened by mid-morning.
Police want to hear from anyone walking or driving in the area at the time as a number of people were seen passing but not all potential witnesses have been traced.
