The pedestrian - a local man - was treated by paramedics but died at the scene.
A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: "We were called at 8.36pm on Thursday to reports of a collision at the junction of Mundford Road and Croxton Road, Thetford.
"We sent two ambulances, an ambulance officer and Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS). Sadly, despite our best efforts, one person died at the scene."
A worker in the area, who did not wish to be named, said: "It's horrible someone having an accident like that, you don't wish it on anyone.
"Everyone is always a bit cautious at that junction, as a driver as well everyone knows it's a bad area. I'm always aware of people pulling out there. It's very sad."
