It was attending an emergency medical job when it collided with a Renault Laguna coming from Yarmouth Road.

No one was injured during the incident.

The pedestrian barrier next to the traffic lights, opposite the BMW garage, has been damaged and Ipswich Borough Council has been informed to ensure it is repaired.
