Man arrested after two seriously hurt in Sandringham crash
A man has been arrested following a crash near Sandringham yesterday in which two people were seriously injured.
Police say a black BMW and a Yamaha motorbike were involved in the incident on The Avenue, close to the junction with the B1440, at around 1.20pm on Sunday.
The male rider of the Yamaha and a woman who was travelling as a pillion passenger, were taken to Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital with serious injuries.
The man was later transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.
A Norfolk Police spokesman added that the driver of the BMW, a 38-year-old man, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of careless driving and drug-driving after failing a roadside test. He was later released under investigation.
The road was closed for around five hours following the incident, to which an air ambulance was called.
Police have said the people involved are not connected to the Sandringham estate.
Anyone who may have seen the crash, or who has dashcam footage of it, is asked to contact PC Matt Harris, of the Roads and Armed Policing unit based at Swaffham, via the non-emergency 101 number.
