A11 set to be closed into the evening following serious collision

Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious road traffic collision on the A11 near Mildenhall.

Officers were called shortly after 10:30am this morning, Wednesday 1 June, following reports of a three-vehicle collision involving a lorry, a Land Rover Defender and a Porsche.

The driver of the Porsche, a woman aged in her 70s, sustained serious injuries and was taken by air ambulance to Addenbrookes Hospital where she remains.

The driver of the lorry, a man aged in his 50s, was taken to West Suffolk Hospital, having sustained injuries that are not believed to be serious.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue crews were also in attendance.

The collision caused extensive damage to the central reservation barrier and both directions of the A11 remain closed between Barton Mills and Elveden to allow for a serious collision investigation to take place and to allow highways to clear the carriageway. The road is expected to remain closed into the early hours of tomorrow, Thursday 2 June.

Police would be keen to hear from any witnesses or anyone who may have dashcam footage of the A11 carriageway just prior to the collision.

Any information to assist the investigation should be reported to Suffolk Police Roads and Armed Policing Team on 101, quoting CAD 95 of Wednesday 1 June.
