Stowmarket: Woman Seriously Injured After Crash

A woman's in hospital in a critical but stable condition following a crash on the A14 at Stowmarket yesterday (2nd April).

The 58-year-old was airlifted to Addenbrookes hospital with serious injuries after the collision, which happened on the roundabout at the top of the eastbound A14 off slip road at junction 49, where it meets the A1308. It happened at around 4.20pm.

She was a front seat passenger in an Alfa Romeo that crashed with a black Lexus car. Both vehicles left the road and ended up on the grass in the middle of the roundabout.

Police, ambulance and fire crews attended along with the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) and the off-slip was closed while an initial investigation got underway.  This was re-opened around 7.40pm.

The woman, who is from the Stowmarket area, was taken to Addenbrookes with serious injuries and this morning she remains in a critical but stable condition.

The driver of the Alfa and the driver of the Lexus sustained minor injuries but didn't require hospital treatment.  

Police are appealing for any witnesses and are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the black Lexus being driven along the A14 from Bury St Edmunds towards the junction, or anyone who may have seen either of the vehicles in the moments before the crash.

If you can help please call PC Jason Lambourne at the Serious Collision Investigation Team at Suffolk Police on 101, quoting CAD 322 of April 2.
