The driver of a green Suzuki Baleno, a 74-year-old man from Lowestoft, suffered a broken right arm and a fractured left leg, after the vehicle was in collision with a silver Toyota Yaris on the A1075 between Shipdham and Watton at Crowshill at about 1pm on Sunday.

The front seat passenger in the Suzuki, a 64-year-old man from the Watton area, suffered a broken left hip and facial injuries.

Both had to be freed by firefighters and went to hospital.

Police said the Toyota was travelling towards Watton when it was in collision with the Suzuki heading in the opposite direction.

Following the initial incident, a silver BMW Mini and a black BMW 318, which were behind the green Suzuki, both again heading towards Shipdham, also collided.
