A PEDESTRIAN has died after being hit by a van.
Police were called to the A134 after reports of a man aged in his 20s walking between Newton and Assington last night.
Shortly after they received a second call from a driver reporting he had struck the man with his van.
A spokesman for Suffolk Police said: "Police were initially contacted by a driver around 6.20pm who reported she was concerned for a man walking along the A134 at Newton.
"Officers immediately went to the area to see if the man could be located.
"Police then received a second call from a driver of a Ford Transit van who reported he had been involved in a collision on the road between Newton and Assington about 6.30pm.
"A search began in the area and at around 7.30pm the body of a man was located."
The road was closed while investigations were carried out.
Police are appealing for anyone with information to call the serious collision investigation team at Suffolk Police on 101.
