An 18-year-old man who died following a road traffic collision in Assington on Monday night has been named as William Turner, from Shoeburyness.

Police were called at 7.55pm to reports of a red Vauxhall Corsa which had overturned and gone into a ditch along the A134.

Ambulance and fire crews also attended, but Mr Turner was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Three other men were extricated from the car and taken to West Suffolk Hospital for treatment, but their injuries were not serious. The road remained closed until 4.45am as a collision investigation got underway.

An 18-year-old man from Berkshire was subsequently arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

He has been bailed to return to the Investigation Centre on Friday, May 29, pending further enquiries.

Anyone who either witnessed the collision, or saw the red Corsa prior to it, is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101 quoting reference CAD 391 of March 23.
