A driver crashed into the central reservation of the A12 after swerving out of the way of a vehicle being driven the wrong way.
The terrifying incident happened on the A12 near East Bergholt on Monday evening, around 8.25pm.
The car – described by police as small and white – was being driven in the wrong direction on the northbound carriageway, forcing drivers to take evasive action to avoid the car.
It is understood the car was being driven by an elderly woman.
One car was clipped by the hurtling white car, while another – a Mazda – was forced to swerve before crashing into the central reservation.
The offending driver then fled the scene, while lane two had to be closed so the Mazda could be recovered.
A spokesman for Suffolk police said no-one was hurt in the accident.
