A man in his 80s has died after a serious two-car crash on the A11 at Barton Mills.
Emergency services were called at 2.20pm on Saturday to the crash at the Fiveways roundabout, which involved a gold Volkswagen Golf and a white Suzuki Swift.
Suffolk fire service sent four crews, the air ambulance landed and multiple ambulances attended, but a man in his 80s, the driver of the Golf, died at the scene.
Two occupants of the Suzuki were taken to hospital, but their injuries are not believed to be serious.
The road was closed in both directions between Mildenhall and Red Lodge, and the northbound carriageway remained closed until just before 7.50pm.
