Vehicle swerves lanes at A14 Rougham causing another vehicle to spin into the central reservation to avoid it





A vehicle spun into the central reservation of the A14 at Rougham in attempt to avoid another vehicle which had swerved lanes.

On Sunday between 7.15pm and 7.30pm, the vehicle was driving onto the exit slip road towards the new Rougham services and Rougham business park, near Bury St Edmunds, but the driver changed their mind and swerved back into lane one of the A14.

This caused another vehicle to take evasive action and spin into the central reservation.
