AN IPSWICH man has been charged with dangerous driving in connection with a two-car smash which left six people injured.

Jamie Nicholls is also accused of driving while disqualified at the time of the crash which happened on Priory Park Road, Nacton, on September 2, last year.

The 22-year-old, who lives in Landseer Road, pleaded not guilty to dangerous driving and to two charges of driving while banned when he appeared before South East Suffolk Magistrates on Tuesday.

There were other charges relating to no insurance and tax.

Nicholls pleaded guilty to these offences.

Six casualties were taken to hospital after the early morning smash involving a Renault Laguna and a Ford Orion on a dead end lane off Nacton Road.

The female back-seat passenger of the Orion was cut from the wreckage of the car and taken to Ipswich Hospital suffering hip, pelvic and spinal injuries. Another female back-seat passenger was treated for a suspected broken upper leg bone. The third woman passenger and the male driver sustained chest and facial injuries.

The male driver of the Laguna suffered facial injuries in the collision and his female passenger sustained spinal and chest injuries.

Three fire engines, four police traffic units, two ambulances and a rapid response vehicle all attended the incident at 12.30am.

Nicholls also denied one charge of burglary when he appeared before magistrates including that of the village store in Yoxford on October 17 last year which he is alleged to have burgled with a youth.

The youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also denied the charge of burglary.

He pleaded not guilty to a breaching a community rehabilitation order.

The case was adjourned to February 5 and Nicholls was remanded in custody until that date.

The youth, who is also from Ipswich, was released on unconditional bail.
