A man has died following a serious collision involving a car, police vehicle and an ambulance on the A14 in Rougham in the early hours of this morning.

The incident was on the westbound carriageway at about 4.35am when a car, followed by a police vehicle and then an ambulance, were all involved in a collision with a man who was in the carriageway.

The man died at the scene and, although he has not been formally identified, he is believed to be 19-years-old and from the local area.

His next of kin have been informed.

Neither the police car or the ambulance were responding to an emergency at the time and were not travelling on ‘blue light’ runs.

The police vehicle was transporting a person under arrest to custody and the ambulance had a patient on board.

No-one in either of these vehicles, or the other car involved, suffered any injuries.

The westbound carriageway was closed for a collision investigation and reopened at 2.30pm.

Suffolk Police have informed the Independent Office for Police Conduct about the incident, as per standard procedure.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101, quoting reference CAD 80 of October 14.
