Lorry driver killed in crash on A14 is named by police

A man who died following a road traffic collision on the A14 at Rougham earlier this week is being named by police.

Officers were called just before 9.45am on Tuesday, August 25, to reports of a collision involving two lorries on the eastbound carriageway.

Ambulance and fire crews were also in attendance, along with a critical care team from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS).

The driver of one of the lorries sadly died at the scene. Subject to confirmation at formal inquest proceedings, he has been identified as Craig Keeble, aged 48, and from Colchester.

The driver of the other lorry was taken to West Suffolk Hospital for a check-up, but did not sustain any serious injuries.

The eastbound carriageway was closed between junctions 43 and 45 for almost 11 hours, reopening at around 8.40pm. This was to allow for a collision investigation to take place and for the recovery of both lorries.

Police are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to the collision to come forward – including anyone who may have travelled along the road in either direction just prior to the incident and has a dash cam in their vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit either by emailing SCIU@suffolk.pnn.police.uk or calling 101, and quoting reference CAD 71 of 25 August.
