Officers were called to the scene of the crash by the ambulance service just after 10am this morning. A car and a van had collided on the eastbound offslip towards Beyton resulting in an 18-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman inside the car receiving bruising injuries that did not require hospital treatment.

The driver of the van was reported to have driven off from the scene. Just before midday a 47-year-old man was arrested for obstruction and perverting the course of justice and was taken into custody at Bury St Edmunds police station.

Shortly after a 25-year-old man volunteered himself to the police and has been reported for summons for disqualified driving, failing to stop at the scene of an accident, and failing to report an accident.
