A MAN whose truck was found part way through a hedge died from natural causes and not from the crash, a post-mortem examination has revealed.

A rapid response vehicle and an ambulance were among emergency services called to the scene on the A140 in Mendlesham at around 5.20pm on Sunday.

Fire crews from Debenham and Eye, a rescue tender from Stowmarket and an enhanced rescue tender from Princes Street, in Ipswich, also attended.

The driver, a 40-year-old man from Ilford, was trapped in a white Mercedes Sprinter but was released by fire crews and treated for a heart attack by paramedics.

He was taken to Ipswich Hospital, where he was pronounced dead soon after.
