Police have named the young woman who died after she was struck by a car on the A14 earlier this week.

The tragic accident happened on the eastbound carriageway close to the village of Rougham in Suffolk at around 5pm on Tuesday afternoon (February 16).

The road was closed for several hours as emergency teams dealt with the situation and a collision investigation was made.

Police, paramedics, an air ambulance and volunteers from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service all attended the accident, but despite their best efforts, the young woman, in her 20s, died at the scene.

Subject to confirmation at formal inquest proceedings, she has been identified as Sophie Riley, aged 25 and originally from the Northamptonshire area.

Sophie Riley was struck and killed by a car while she was walking along the eastbound carriageway of the A14.

Her family said in tribute to the 25-year-old: “Sophie was a well-loved, loving caring daughter, sister, granddaughter and cousin who will be sadly missed by us all.”

Suffolk Police continue to appeal to the public for further information regarding the accident that claimed Sophie’s life.

Anyone who witnessed the accident or has information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team quoting CAD 230 of 16 February either online or by calling 101.
