Police have today named a boy who died following a fatal road traffic collision on Friday evening, 19th February.

Emergency services were called at 5pm to reports of a single vehicle collision on a minor road south of Peasenhall.

 Ambulance, police and the Air Ambulance attended. The occupants of the vehicle – one male and three children – were found to have sustained injuries. One of the passengers - a boy - was declared dead at the scene. He has today been named as 12 year old Luke Reid from London.

 The other three occupants of the green Land Rover were taken to Ipswich Hospital, none of them suffered serious injuries.

Luke’s family has issued the following tribute - “Luke was a bright light in all our lives. He was happy and loving and always interested in everyone. We miss him terribly and know how lucky we were to have had him in our lives.”

The collision occurred on an un-named road between Peasenhall and Carlton (running between Rendham Road and a road near to the north end of Pipney Hill). Police want to speak to anyone who was in this area at the time, particularly the occupants of a large black car, possibly a Land Rover Discovery, seen driving along this road prior to the collision.
