A woman has suffered 'life changing' injuries after being hit by a car on the A12 near Martlesham.
Emergency services were called to the scene, on the carriageway between the Seckford Hall roundabout and the Black Tiles roundabout, at around 6.15pm today, Thursday, November 28.
The road was closed by police, both northbound and southbound carriageways, as emergency services worked at the scene.
The road was reopened by police just before 11pm.
A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said the woman has been taken to Ipswich Hospital for treatment with what are believed to be 'life-changing' injuries.
He said: "A pedestrian has been hit by a vehicle on the A12. "They have received serious injuries.
"Police, fire and ambulance are on scene at this moment in time."
Suffolk Constabulary later confirmed the woman had been transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.
