Samuel Fordham, 28, from Saxmundham, and Darren Welton, 20, from Kelsale, died following the accident on the A145 at Henham on Wednesday, January 23.

Driver Sam Morphey, aged 24, from Yoxford, has now been released from Ipswich Hospital after sustaining serious injuries. He is the brother of Ben Morphey, of High Street, Yoxford, who is currently serving a prison sentence after a road crash in which five people were killed on the A12 at Blythburgh in July 2006.

Investigations are continuing into the cause of the Henham crash.

Police have spoken to a number of motorists who were in the area at the time but say they need to trace a vehicle that was seen heading southbound on the A12 at around 7am. It is described as some kind of taxi or private hire vehicle with a roof light and is thought to have turned right on to the A145 and then possibly on to the B1123 towards Halesworth.

Anyone with information is asked to call PC Jon Doran or Sgt Steve Knight at Halesworth Roads Policing Unit on 01986 835300.
