Teen Dies After Being Run Over By A Car, Police Car And An Ambulance
A teenager has tragically died after being run over three times by three different vehicles, including a police car and an ambulance.
The 19-year-old unfortunately died at the scene of the incident on the A14 dual-carriageway near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
The teen, whose identity has not been revealed, was killed in the early hours of the morning and the family have been told.
It was reported that the teenager was 'on the carriageway' when he was run over by the car.
At the time of the incident both the police car and the ambulance weren't in a state of emergency and were just travelling on the road - however, it was reported, the police were taking a suspect to a nearby custody centre, in Bury St Edmunds and the ambulance was said to have a patient on board.
This afternoon, a police spokesman said: "Neither the police car or the ambulance were responding to an emergency at the time and as such were not travelling on 'blue light' runs.

Police are seeking out anyone who may have any further knowledge on the teenager.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101, quoting reference CAD 80 of 14 October.
