“There used to be some accidents along that road but there hasn't been many of late and there is now a 40mph speed limit.
“That only came about recently because of fears over the entrance of the Canonn Avent factory and its car park - that was one of the main aspects for reducing the speed and the parish council was very supportive of that.”
Anyone with information about the accident should contact Sgt Tim Lusher or Pc Sarah Grant at Bury St Edmunds road policing unit on 01473 613500.
