The crash tragically resulted in the death of Alan Bond, 39, who was driving a black Vauxhall Corsa, while the driver of the HGV was arrested.
Cambridgeshire Police were unable to comment on an ongoing investigation, but confirmed that a man from Swale was taken into custody for multiple potential driving-related offences.
The 33-year-old was arrested on suspicion of driving while disqualified and causing death while disqualified from driving.
No charges have been filed against the man, who has not been named at this point, and has been bailed until November.
Ambulance crews attended the scene of the crash and Mr Bond, of Huntingfield Road, Bury St Edmunds, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, where he died later that day.
He worked for many years at The Junction in Cambridge where he started in the box office before becoming a manager.

In a statement, Mr Bond’s family said: “Alan was a devoted husband to his wife, Charlotte, and an incredible father to his two young children. He will be truly missed by all his family.
“We know he helped so many people and had so many close friends to whom he meant so much. We will remember Alan for his sense of humour and all the adventures he had with his friends and family.
“He loved the natural world and would often be found early in the morning with his son and daughter exploring Ickworth Park. He recently took up photography and put this to great effect taking amazing pictures of his family and nature.
“We thank everyone for their messages of condolence at this very difficult time and wish to thank all the emergency services involved. We would ask that our privacy is respected at this difficult time.”
Anyone who witnessed the collision should call 101 and ask to speak to a member of the Road Policing Unit, quoting Op Clements.
