A MAN has been seriously injured after he was involved in a collision with a Land Rover Freelander in Lowestoft this afternoon (Tuesday).

The collision has caused major traffic problems in the town centre at the height of rush hour and police called on motorists to avoid the area.

Officers are still at the scene investigating the incident after a man suffered serious head injuries in the collision in Denmark Road at about 3.55pm today.

The collision has led to the closure of Katwijk Way - one of the main routes into the town - to southbound traffic and Denmark Road, from Peto Way to the bascule bridge.

Police spokesman Anne-Marie Breach told The Journal: “A man has been taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston with head injuries, which are believed to be serious but not life threatening.

“The collision is likely to cause traffic problems in the town centre at this time of night what with the road closures, and we would ask motorists to avoid the area.”

Police are seeking witnesses to the collision, and anyone that can help should telephone Halesworth Roads Policing Unit on 01986 835300.
