A pedestrian involved in a serious crash near the A12 in Copdock remains in Addenbrooke's hospital with serious injuries.

The incident took place at 5.45pm last night on Old London Road, just outside the Best Western Hotel.

A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said: "A black Ford Fiesta collided with a male pedestrian, aged in his 50s, who was crossing the Washbrook carriageway.

"The pedestrian sustained serious injuries including a serious head injury as well as internal injuries. He was taken to Addenbrooke's hospital where he remains."

A team from the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance, a volunteer critical care paramedic from Suffolk's Emergency Medical Charity (SARS) and the East of England Ambulance Service were all mobilised to the scene.

The road was closed while emergency services attended the incident.

Officers from Suffolk police are appealing for any witnesses to the collision.

Anyone who saw the incident should contact police, quoting CAD 286 of 10 December.
