A14 crash between BMW, fuel pump and three other cars sparks Suffolk Police investigation




Suffolk Police have launched an investigation after a BMW crashed into three vehicles and a fuel pump at a service station just outside Newmarket last week.

A white BMW 1 Series was involved in a crash with three other vehicles and a fuel pump at the BP service station on the A14 eastbound near Newmarket, between junction 36 and 37 on Wednesday at about 7.20am.

The crash caused significant damage to the pump, and the petrol station had to close for more than 15 hours after fuel started leaking at the forecourt.
