The westbound carriageway of the A14 has reopened after a crash between a car and a tractor.

Emergency services were called at about 8.10am today, October 1, to the eastbound carriageway at junction 50, Creeting St Peter, after reports of a two-vehicle collision.

The eastbound carriageway remains closed and is not expected to reopen for some time, Suffolk police said.

Four appliances from Suffolk Fire & Rescue were sent to the scene from Ipswich East, Princes Street, Debenham and Needham Market.

According to a police spokesman, one person has been injured in the crash but the extent of their injuries is not yet known.

A witness reported seeing the tractor trailer “on top of the car.”

The AA Traffic Map is showing severe delays on the road and surrounding areas.

The delays may cause problems for football fans as Ipswich Town face Portsmouth at home, with train strikes already disrupting travel to the match.
