A PEDESTRIAN who was in collision with a car in Sudbury has been transferred to a specialist head injury unit suffering from “life changing” injuries, police revealed.

Louise Morley, 38, from Stanstead, near Sudbury, was left fighting for her life after an accident on Friday, July 20.

Police revealed she had been transferred from West Suffolk Hospital, Bury St Edmunds, to a specialist head injury unit at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: “Her condition is critical but stable with life changing but not believed to be life threatening injuries.”

After the accident, which took place at Station Road's junction with Edgworth Road, the victim's condition was so serious her ambulance needed a police escort to hospital. She had suffered serious injuries to her head and lower legs.

The motorist, a 27-year-old from Glemsford, was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and has been bailed to report back to Bury police station on August 26.
