Road traffic accident

Man flung from his lorry cab suffers back injury

An accident involving a car and a lorry has resulted in one driver suffering back injury and the other suffering serious injuries..

The road traffic accident occurred on a rural road in between Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket in the south-east of England.

Two ambulances and a rapid response vehicle attended the scene of the collision, which reportedly caused the lorry driver to be thrown from his cab, and took both victims to different hospitals for treatment.

The lorry was found overturned when emergency units arrived, but the driver did not suffer serious personal injuries although he did have a leg and back injury. He was taken to West Suffolk Hospital.

The motorist in the car, however, suffered "very serious injuries" according to a Suffolk Police statement, but further details of the driver's condition have not been released. He was taken for emergency treatment at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

Suffolk Police stayed more than four hours investigating the crash site and a police spokesperson stated, "No other vehicles were involved".

If the car driver is found liable then the lorry driver may be able to claim compensation for his back injury and damage to his legs. Likewise, should the lorry driver be found liable, the seriously injured motorist could decide to take legal action for his pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
