Investigators are continuing to piece together the circumstances surrounding two Suffolk road crashes that left three people dead on Thursday.
Police have confirmed that a man killed when the van he was driving struck The Crown Inn, in Bridge Street, Snape, was 46 and from the local area. He has yet to be officially named.
Two people earlier found dead in the burnt wreckage of a car in Primrose Lane, Frostenden, have not been formally identified.
Police were called to Snape at around 2.20pm. Road closures remained in place at the crossroads of Bridge Road, Church Road, Priory Road and Gromford Lane well into the night as collision investigations were carried out.
Firefighters were the first on scene at Frostenden, following reports of a vehicle on fire in Primrose Lane at 1.14am.
They had the flames under control within half-an-hour but were unable to save the victims, who were both pronounced dead at the scene.
The two accidents took the total number of fatalities on Suffolk’s roads in 2015 to 30 – the same number as were killed in the county in the whole of 2014.
