Driver of overturned lorry on Nacton Road roundabout ‘de-arrested’ without charge
A lorry driver has been released without charge following his arrest on suspicion of drink driving after his vehicle overturned on a roundabout just outside Ipswich.
The roundabout connecting Nacton Road with The Havens reopened in the early hours of this morning following Friday’s collision, which resulted in the driver’s arrest.
The man, in his 50s, was de-arrested without charge on Friday evening.
The articulated lorry overturned on the roundabout near the onslip for the A14 westbound.
The incident happened at around 5.30pm on Friday underneath the A14 bridge heading onto the A14 westbound, just after the roundabout near the Toyota garage and Holiday Inn.
A spokeswoman from Suffolk police said the lorry had gone on to its left side, and was causing severe delays in the area.
One lane remained open until recovery arrived, when the roundabout was closed.
