Suffolk Police are today releasing a tribute to a woman who died following a collision on the A14 at Nacton.

Officers were called just after 10.20am Wednesday 16th May, to reports of a three-vehicle collision on the westbound carriageway involving a lorry, a van and a car. The van had been towing the car, a silver Vauxhall Corsa, at the time.

The Ambulance Service and the Air Ambulance attended to Carmen Bucur, who was in the Corsa, but she sadly died on the scene. 

Carmen Bucur was 33 years old from Romania and was living locally in Hollesley Road, Alderton near Woodbridge, Suffolk.

Her family have made the following tribute to her:

"Carmen Bucur was the victim of a horrible accident but she was also a wife and mother of a gorgeous little 7 year old girl. There are no words to express our grief or to predict the trauma to her daughter Stefonia. Despite the tragic end of our beloved Carmen, we want to thank Suffolk Police and the Air Ambulance who behaved with the highest standards. We will never see her again but she will always be with us in spirit."

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the crash to get in contact, especially anyone who saw the Corsa being towed prior to the crash.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Allie Cotton at the Serious Investigation Team on 101.

A 43 year old man from Feltham, Middlesex, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He has since been released on police bail and is due to return to the Martlesham Police Investigation Centre on Friday 13th July.
