A man has been taken to hospital after the air ambulance was called to a crash in a west Suffolk village. 

Emergency services were called to the crash in the A143 in Hepworth, north of Bury St Edmunds, at about 6.40pm on Monday. 

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said a rapid response vehicle and the East Anglian Air Ambulance were both called to the scene. 

A man was taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds by land ambulance for further treatment. 

The extent of his injuries is not yet known.

The incident comes after an 18-year-old man died following a crash in nearby Summer Road, between Hepworth and Walsham le Willows, on Friday, February 2.

The teenager, who was driving a silver Ford Fiesta, had left the road to the nearside and crashed into a tree.

He was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge for treatment for life-threatening injuries before he died several days later.
