It collided with a Ducati motorcycle, ridden by a man aged in his 60s and from the Sudbury area.

The motorcyclist suffered a head injury, which is described as life threatening. 

He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

The car driver, a man aged in his 40s from Manningtree, was not injured.
