COPS have closed a busy Colchester road following a serious accident.

Mersea Road is closed between Queen Elizabeth Way and Stansted Road after a van hit two garden walls and rolled at 6.10pm.

One of the passengers has been taken to Colchester General Hospital with "serious, life-changing" injuries.

Police have arrested the driver, and he is being checked over at hospital.

A third occupant of the white Transit pick-up is unaccounted for.

Police hope to re-open the road by 10pm once crash investigators have cleared the scene.

Anyone with information should contact the Stanway Road Policing Unit on 101.
