Three young men are now under arrest following a fatal crash at Blythburgh in which two teenagers were killed.
Shortly after the tragedy, which occurred on November 23 last year at the White Hart public house on the A12, police said a 17-year-old man – who is now aged 18 - had been arrested on suspicion of death by dangerous driving.
However, officers have now revealed three others were subsequently detained on suspicion of the same offence, although one has since been told he is no longer a suspect.
The remaining three are still on police bail pending the outcome of the inquiry.
The collision happened when the driver of a grey Citroen Berlingo struck the pub at 9:30pm.
