A man in his 20s was arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving offences including dangerous driving and drug driving and remains in police custody. Two other men have been further detained in hospital and will be taken into custody in due course.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or the manner of driving of the black Ford Focus prior to the incident, to contact them.

Anyone with information or dash cam footage should contact Sergeant Adi Hales at Acle Roads Policing on 101.

As per standard procedure the collision has been referred to the Independent Office of Police Conduct.
