A car parked on a drive in Norwich Road has been written off after a van crashed through a garden wall.
Residents were woken by the noise of a car smashing through the brick wall shortly before midnight on Tuesday, December 10.
A resident of the street, who wished to remain anonymous, said he was shocked to see the van destroy the wall before hitting a neighbour's car and writing it off.
He said: "It just went straight through the wall.
"If the wall hadn't been there it would be very different and a lot of damage would have been done to the house."
Emergency services were called to the scene in Norwich Road, just opposite the BMW garage.
A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said: "We were called to reports that a vehicle had crashed into a wall and one male was medically trapped inside."
The fire crews removed the driver from the vehicle and he was left in the care of the ambulance service.
A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service added: "We were called to Norwich Road shortly after 11.45pm last night following reports of a collision.
"An ambulance attended and crews treated a male patient at the scene before transporting him to Ipswich Hospital for further assessment and care."
Officers from Suffolk police were also in attendance to deal with traffic management.
