A 19-year-old killed in an accident on the A14 at Rougham involving a police car and ambulance has been named.

Ewan Clover, from Rougham, died at the scene of the incident at around 4.35am on Sunday morning.

It happened on the westbound carriageway when a car, followed by a police vehicle and then an ambulance, were all involved in a collision with Mr Clover who was in the carriageway.

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

The police vehicle was conveying a person under arrest to custody and the ambulance had a patient on board, however no one in either of these vehicles, or the other car involved, sustained any injuries.

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

Mr Clover was a production operative at Whitewater Graphics and Design in Bury St Edmunds and had worked at the company for around a year.

Andy Connacher, owner of Whitewater, said: “Everybody is shocked, Ewan was a popular, gentle man.

“He was very popular and everyone at the company is devastated about what’s happened.

“Ironically, Ewan worked on Saturday and myself and one of the company directors were discussing giving him a pay rise as he’d been doing so well. Then this happened.

“It’s been a very difficult day for everyone here.”

Many of Mr Clover’s friends also paid tribute on social media.

One read: “You’ve been taken far too soon. It’s killing me inside even the thought of not hearing of your antics, let alone seeing you again.

“Just know I’ll always look to the sky and be thinking of you bro! You were loved and always will be, fly high up there, rest easy Ewan, rest easy brother.”

Following the incident the westbound carriageway of the A14 was closed for investigation and did not open again until around 2.30pm in the afternoon.Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101, quoting reference CAD 80 of October 14.
