A police investigation into a crash between an ambulance and a pensioner’s car has been concluded, with no arrests made.

Beverly Richardson’s car collided with an ambulance near her home in Melford Road, Sudbury, on April 24.

She was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with broken bones and severe head, chest and internal injuries but has since made a full recovery.

The ambulance crew, who were responding to a 999 call in Sudbury when the incident happened, where shaken but unhurt.

Pc Allie Cotton, from Suffolk Police’s serious collision investigation unit, said: “A full investigation has been carried out and there is not going to be any prosecution made against anyone involved in the collision.”

Sixty-nine-year-old Mrs Richardson, who is secretary of the East Anglia District of the Methodist Church, and her husband, Philip, thanked the emergency services after the crash for their life-saving efforts.
