Traffic incident on A12 at Copdock causes standstill on the roads

A woman who was seriously hurt in a collision on the southbound A12 yesterday remains in hospital, Suffolk police have said.

Her condition has been described as serious but stable, and it is thought she sustained head injuries in the crash.

The woman, who is thought to be in her 20s and from Ipswich, is also believed to have a suspected fractured neck.

Officers were called to the scene of the accident, which happened on the southbound carriageway of the road about a quarter-of-a-mile south of the Copdock roundabout, at 11.50am yesterday.

Both carriageways were closed after the crash, which involved two lorries and a Peugeot 206.

A Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) spokesman said Suffolk Fire and Rescue helped free the woman from her car before being treated at the scene by a SARS volunteer doctor, the Essex Air Ambulance team and paramedics.

The woman was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital by air ambulance with serious injuries.
