18-year-old Jonny Cash was pronounced dead at the scene

An 18-year-old man from Ashford has been killed in a crash in Suffolk.

Victim Jonny Cash was one of two men to have died in the smash in Blythburg on Saturday night.

Emergency services were called to the A12 at around 9.30pm following reports of a grey Citroen Berlingo crashing into the White Hart pub.

The two men were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police named one as Christopher Doran, a 19-year-old man from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, and the second as Mr Cash, from Ashford.

Four other men, believed to be in their late teens/early twenties, were also injured.

All four remain in hospital and are all currently in a stable condition.

Officers want to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or may have seen the car beforehand, which had been travelling north on the A12 towards Lowestoft.

Anyone with information contact the PC Allie Cotton at the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
