A man has been airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries following a crash between four cars this afternoon, which has closed a stretch of the A11.
At around 3.10pm, emergency services were called to the A11, between Thickthorn and Attleborough, following a crash involving four cars – including a Jaguar and a Ford Mondeo. The crash happened in the carriageway heading towards Norwich, however, police have closed the road in both directions to allow the East of England Air Ambulance to land at the scene. A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary said the road is likely to be closed “for the foreseeable” while emergency services treat to the people involved and the vehicles are recovered.
Traffic is being diverted away from the scene via the Old A11 and police have warned the road will remain closed for some time. The northbound carriageway was re-opened at around 4.30pm, but the southbound carriageway remains closed while the vehicles are recovered. The police spokesman said that “multiple” people had suffered injuries in the crash, including one man who was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital via air ambulance with “significant and life-threatening injuries”.
The cars involved were a black Jaguar, a silver Ford Mondeo, a silver Ford Focus and a fourth car, which the police did not provide details of.
Anybody who witnessed the crash or has dashcam footage of it is urged to contact Norfolk Constabulary on 101 quoting incident number 195 of November 22.
