A teenager seriously injured during an incident in Elmstead has, sadly, died in hospital.
Officers were called to reports of an injured man at the B1027 near Keelars Lane at 5.10am on Sunday (18 September).
He was taken to hospital but, sadly, has now died in hospital.
A 37 year-old man from St Osyth was arrested on Monday (19 September) on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of a collision, and failing to report a collision.
He has since been released under investigation.
Officers have also recovered a vehicle.
Sergeant Alex Black, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said:
“My thoughts, and those of my team, are with the family of the young man who has died.
“We are working hard to establish the circumstances around the incident and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with it.
“I do still need anyone who saw anything or has any footage of the incident, or the moments leading up to it, to come forward.”
