Part of the A14 is likely to remain shut for several hours after a serious crash involving a pedestrian and a number of vehicles on the A14 at Woolpit.
The incident happened just after 5am and the A14 westbound is currently closed from Junction 47 (Woolpit) to Junction 51 (A140 Beacon Hill).
Officers remain at the scene and the carriageway is expected to remain shut for several hours. Diversions have been put in place but motorists are being asked to use another route if possible.
The eastbound carriageway is open.
Highways England said: "For traffic approaching the closure locally, you are advised to expect disruption with extra journey time and may potentially have to re-route your journey.
You may also want to watch:
"If travelling towards this area from much farther afield, you may wish to change your strategic route, allow extra travel time and follow guidance from our on-road variable message signs and media."
Witnesses or anybody with information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101, quoting CAD reference 64 of August 10.
