A woman in her 80s was taken to hospital with serious chest injuries after a car crash during the morning rush hour, with another driver also hospitalised.

At around 8.10am on Friday, October 19, a white Toyota Yaris and a red For Fiesta collided on Queen Elizabeth Drive in Beccles, at the junction with Duke Street.

Both drivers had to be cut from their cars by Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service.

The driver of the Toyota Yaris, a woman in her 80s, was taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston with serious chest injuries - where she remains in a serious but stable condition.

The Ford Fiesta driver sustained minor injuries and was also taken to the James Paget Hospital, but has since been discharged.

“Anyone with information should contact PC Callum Walchester at Acle Roads and Armed Policing Team by calling 101 and quoting reference CAD 60 of 19 October.”
