A teenager has died following a road traffic collision in Oulton Broad.

Officers were called by the ambulance service shortly before 10.15am on Wednesday 17th  November to reports of a collision between a white van and a cyclist on Higher Drive, near the Woods Loke West junction.

The cyclist sustained life-threatening injuries and was flown by air ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, where he sadly died on Thursday 18th November.

Pending formal Coroner’s inquest proceedings, police have provisionally identified the deceased as 16-year-old Ethan Wright from Lowestoft.

Ethan’s family are being supported by specialist trained officers and have requested that their privacy is respected at this time.

The road was closed for several hours to allow for a collision investigation to be carried out, reopening at approximately 4pm on Wednesday afternoon.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision and from those driving in the area with a dashcam fitted in their vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit.
