A WITNESS appeal has been launched after a man suffered life threatening injuries in a crash.

Police are seeking witnesses and dash cam footage of the crash which happened on the A130 near Battlesbridge on Sunday.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: "We were called to reports of a single vehicle collision shortly after 7.30pm where a Green Ford Focus left the road after it was in collision with the barrier.

"The driver, a man in his 20s, was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries.

"We believe the driver had joined the A130 having travelled along the A13 and we would like to speak to anyone who was in there area around this time and has dash cam footage or witnessed the collision."
