A14: Objects Thrown From Bridge
Suffolk Police have received a number of reports of items being thrown from a bridge over the A14 at Sproughton yesterday afternoon.
Police were first contacted at around 4:25pm by a member of the public reporting they had witnessed someone throwing rocks at vehicles travelling on the eastbound carriageway from the side of the road near the Farthing Road Industrial Estate.
A further call was made to police describing a group of 3-4 youths throwing items onto the road.
Officers immediately attended the scene and made a search of the area with the support of the police helicopter.
No one was injured during the incident and no collisions were caused however a number of vehicles sustained damaged.
Detective Superintendent Stuart Sedgwick who has been leading an investigation into a number of similar incidents which have occurred on major trunk roads in the county this year said:
We are taking these crimes extremely seriously. It goes without saying that throwing anything from a bridge onto a busy road has the potential to result in road traffic collisions causing serious injury - or even death."
Police are appealing for anyone who was travelling along this stretch of road at the time and may have witnessed the incident or those responsible to contact them immediately on 101.
