A man has been bailed following a fatal crash on the A14 near Coddenham.
In the early hours of yesterday morning, a male car passenger died in a collision with a lorry.
Another passenger suffered minor injuries, while the driver of the lorry was unharmed.
The driver of the car, a 25-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving on Friday but has since been bailed until April 26.
Officers from Suffolk police and Highways England closed the road between junctions 51 and 50 then reopened it at 5pm, over 12 hours since the crash at around 4.50am.
John Whitehead, councillor for Coddenham at Mid Suffolk District Council said afterwards: "It looks like a tragic situation."
Suffolk's police and crime commissioner Tim Passmore said he was also "very sad to hear of the fatality".
"It reminds all road users to be careful," he added. "Thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved."
