A man has been struck by three vehicles on the A14 including a police car and an ambulance.

Suffolk Police say the A14 westbound at Rougham is currently closed following a serious road traffic collision overnight.

The incident occurred at around 4.35am this morning (Sunday 14 October) when a car, followed by a police vehicle and then an ambulance, were all involved in a collision with a male who was in the carriageway.

Neither the police car or the ambulance were responding to a blue-light emergency.

At 11am, Suffolk Police said: "The road will remain closed for several hours while a collision investigation takes place. Traffic is being diverted off the westbound carriageway onto the A1088 at Junction 47 near Woolpit, rejoining the A14 at Junction 43 in Bury St Edmunds, via the A143 and A134. The eastbound carriageway is unaffected and open as normal."

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

Any witnesses to this incident are asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101 quoting reference 80 of 14 October.

As at Sunday lunchtime, the condition of the individual involved hasn't been released.
