Police can confirm a woman has died following a collision on the A14 yesterday, Tuesday, February 16.
Officers were called just after 5pm to reports of a collision on the eastbound A14 in Rougham, near Bury St Edmunds, involving a pedestrian and a car.
Volunteers from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service and an air ambulance were also in attendance, but the pedestrian – a woman in her 20s – died at the scene.
The carriageway between the Rougham and Thurston junctions had to be closed until just after midnight while officers dealt with the incident and investigations into the circumstances of the incident got underway.
Motorists, many who were caught up for over three to four hours in the aftermath of the crash, were directed by police to carry out a three-point turn in the road and drive towards the Rougham junction where they were able to exit the A14.
Diversions were also put in place so traffic could avoid the area.Witnesses or anybody with information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team quoting CAD 230 of 16 February via
