A teenage girl who was believed to be from Felixstowe has died after her car collided with a parked lorry in a lay-by on the A14.

Police officers were called to the eastbound carriageway at Bucklesham at 11.35pm on Wednesday, to reports of a crash between a silver Ford Ka and a lorry between junction 58 at Seven Hills and junction 59 at Kirton.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, despite the best efforts of ambulance, police and fire crews.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said formal identification of the body would take place in due course.

The eastbound carriageway was closed during the early hours of yesterday morning while a collision investigation got under way, with police leaving the scene at 4.45am.

The Highways Agency reopened the road shortly afterwards.
