A 17-year-old girl remains in a critical condition after being involved in a serious crash between a car and a van.

Emergency services were called to a two-vehicle collision on the B1123 in Blyford, near Halesworth, at around 4.45pm yesterday.

A silver Vauxhall Corsa had been in collision with a silver Renault Trafic van.

The rear-seat passenger of the Corsa, a 17-year-old girl, was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, having sustained life-threatening injuries.

A spokesman for the East Anglian Air Ambulance said a doctor and paramedic monitored and assessed her throughout the journey to Addenbrooke’s.

Three other people who had been travelling in the Corsa were taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston, to be checked over.

The road was closed for several hours while a collision investigation took place and reopened at 11pm.
