A man was killed and another was in critical condition following a road accident in Suffolk last night.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident which happened on Sotterley Road, Hulver, three miles south west of Lowestoft.

The second man was taken to the James Paget Hospital, Gorleston, following the accident where a police spokesman last night described his condition as “critical''.

Firefighters were called to the scene of the accident, which happened at about 10pm, to cut the men from the wreckage of their car, the only vehicle involved.

Three fire crews from Wrentham, Beccles and Lowestoft attended the accident which was believed to have happened when the car hit a tree.

Last night, police were still at the scene of the accident where they were beginning an investigation into its cause.
