Brome: Police appeal after woman dies from crash injuries

14:43 28 November 2012


POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision on the A140 at Brome.


Emergency services were called to the scene at around 4.15pm yesterday, following a report that a Peugeot 306 car and a Mercedes LGV had been in collision on the A140 at Brome, near to the junction of the B1077.

The female driver of the Peugeot, aged in her 20s and from the Diss area, was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich hospital with serious injuries but died earlier today.

The male lorry driver was uninjured.

A section of the road was closed while emergency services dealt with the incident and the vehicles involved were recovered.

Police would like to hear from anyone who was travelling along the A140 who saw the vehicles involved prior to, or when the collision occurred.

Calls should be made to Pc Danny Ormes at Suffolk Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
