A two-vehicle crash on the A12 near Woodbridge caused “standstill” traffic for around two hours this afternoon.
Police said a black Kia Sportage and a Mitsubishi L200 were involved in a head-on collision on the A12 northbound at the turn-off for Bredfield at around 2.25pm today. The vehicles had been travelling in opposite directions.
There were no serious injuries and the road had been fully reopened by 4.45pm.
A woman in her 50s has reportedly suffered minor chest pains as a result of the incident, a spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said.
Officers arrived at the scene and closed to traffic both sides of the dual carriageway.
One witness at the scene, travelling towards Ipswich, said there was “standstill traffic” on the southbound carriageway in the Ufford area, with traffic not as badly affected northbound. The witness said they did not move for around 30 minutes.
There was also slow-moving traffic on both sides for several miles during the incident, according to reports.
Recovery services arrived at the scene and had cleared both vehicles by 4.45pm.
