Stowmarket: Collision Between Car and Train

A man had to be taken to hospital with a head injury after a collision between a car and a train in Stowmarket in Suffolk last night.

East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) crews and fire crews were called to the incident at an unmanned level crossing on Newton Road in Stowmarket at 7.38pm.

A man who was in the car and believed to be in his 30s was treated on scene and taken to Ipswich Hospital with a non life-threatening head injury.

Twenty-four passengers on the train as well as the train driver and the guard were assessed on scene and escaped unhurt.

An ambulance, an officer and a manager from EEAST attended the scene.

The Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) was deployed as there was concern the incident could have been major but the team was stood down when the scene was assessed.

There were delays on the line between Ipswich and Stowmarket for a few hours last night.
