Police appeal after car bursts in to flames following serious collision on A11

Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious collision on the A11 in Eriswell at the weekend.

Officers were called at just before 8.10am on Saturday 30 March to reports of a single vehicle collision on the northbound carriageway.

A white Vauxhall Corsa went off the road to the nearside, over the grass bank and between some trees, before turning on its side and bursting into flames.

The two occupants managed to evacuate the vehicle and both sustained injuries, with the passenger taken to hospital having sustained a potentially life-changing injury.

Fire service and ambulance crews – including an air ambulance – were also in attendance at the incident and lane one of the road remained closed until 12.40pm.

Officers are appealing for any witnesses to the collision and asking any motorists driving in the area at the time of the incident with a dashcam fitted in their vehicle to review the footage.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Suffolk Police quoting reference: 37/17498/24.
