A sports car driver who was involved with a crash with a lorry made off with the other driver’s keys shortly after the incident, police have announced.

Suffolk Constabulary released an appeal for witnesses today following the incident on January 7 on the A144 at Stone Street in Halesworth.

They said they were looking to trace the driver of a “small dark coloured sports car”.

A statement released by the force said: “A lorry was being driven along the A144 at Stone Street around 4.40pm on Thursday 7 January when the vehicle was overtaken by the sports car – possibly a Mazda or similar.

“Moments later the car stopped in front of the lorry and the lorry driver overtook the car. The car then overtook again, pulling in front of the lorry, causing the driver of the lorry to slam on the brakes but he was unable to avoid a collision.”
