A CYCLIST has been rushed to hospital with head injuries after a crash on Ipswich Road.
The cyclist collided with a van near the Waitrose supermarket.
Police closed the northbound Ipswich Road, in Colchester, while paramedics treated the man at the scene.
The air ambulance was called and hovered but he was eventually taken to Colchester General Hospital by land ambulance.
The road closure caused traffic problems along Ipswich Road, Cowdray Avenue, East Hill and all the way into the High Street.
The crash took place just after 8am near a pedestrian crossing.
