Police are appealing for any further witnesses to come forward following a road traffic collision on the A134 in Sudbury yesterday.

Officers were contacted around 1.50pm yesterday, Tuesday, July 26, following the two vehicle collision on the A134 not far from Shawlands Avenue. A Mercedes Sprinter van collided with a Skoda Fabia car.

The man in his 80s driving the Skoda and a woman in her 70s who was a passenger in the vehicle both sustained serious injuries and were airlifted to Addenbrooke’s hospital. Both remain in hospital and are said to be in a stable condition.

The van driver, in his 50s, sustained bruising but did not require hospital treatment.

Police have spoken to several witnesses but are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the vehicles prior to the collision or the crash itself. It’s known the Mercedes van was travelling between Haverhill and Sudbury at the time.

Anyone with information that may help is asked to call Suffolk Police on 101, quoting CAD 208 of yesterday, Tuesday, July 26.
