A Suffolk police spokesman last night said the boy had not yet been formally identified but was believed to be Ronnie Alex.

Family liaison officers were understood to be with the boy's family last night as police renewed their appeal for witnesses of the crash and investigations continued.

A police spokeswoman said it was not known at the present time what the 15-year-old was doing on the A14 at the time of the crash or how he came to get onto the carriageway.

A worker at Getaway Cars, next to the A14 where the incident happened, told how at first she assumed a lorry had broken down.

She said: “It pulled over to the side of the road. Then I saw the flashing lights of the police cars.”

The busy carriageway was closed until 2am yesterday morning to allow crash investigators to examine the scene. The eastbound track of the A14 was also closed for a while.

Police are appealing for information to the incident and any witnesses should call Pc Roger Bishop in the Bury Roads Policing Unit on 01473 613500.
