Road Traffic Collision on the A14 at Creeting St Mary
Copdock: Appeal After Lorry Crash
Suffolk Police are renewing their appeal for witnesses following a serious collision on the A12/A14 at Copdock, which left the road closed for over eight hours.
Police were called at approximately 10.10am Monday morning, with a report that a red lorry travelling southbound on the A12 junction with the A14 had jack knifed on the over bridge, causing part of its load of doors to shed on to the A14 below.
The driver of the lorry was left shaken but uninjured.
A white Corsa car travelling east bound on the A14 was hit by the shedding load. The female driver of this vehicle was taken to Ipswich hospital and treated for minor injuries, cuts and bruises.
Emergency services and highways attended the scene, with the lorry and car being recovered, the shed load of doors cleared from carriageways and a temporary repair made to the over bridge crash barrier.
The west bound carriageway of the A14 was re-opened at around 4.30pm and the east bound carriageway and over bridge were both re-opened by just before 7pm.
Police are very keen to hear from any witnesses to the collision, or from anyone who saw the red Mann lorry travelling prior to it jack knifing on the over bridge. Calls should be made to Sergeant John Hawkes at Suffolk Police Roads Policing Unit at Police Headquarters on 101.
