A man is said to have suffered a heart attack before his car collided with a lorry.

Emergency services were called in around 11:10am yesterday morning to Saxmundham Road in Leiston, where it is suggested a car drove in to a lorry at low speed. It is believed the man, who is said to be in his seventies, already had an existing medical problem and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Part of Saxmundham Road was closed while Police launched an investigation into the incident, however the road reopened around 2.30pm.

Police are now appealing for any witnesses that may have seen the accident, particularly anybody driving in the Leiston area yesterday morning who may have been involved in a 'near-miss' before the accident happened.

Anybody with any information about the accident can contact Suffolk Police on 01473 613500.
