Dead baby’s family remain in hospital after A12 smash

CRASH experts are continuing their investigations into an accident on the A12 that claimed the life of a baby boy.

The 10-month-old died in hospital hours after the Volkswagen Passat he was travelling in collided with a van near Kelvedon.

Police yesterday revealed three other members of the baby’s family – from Luton, Bedfordshire – remain in hospital.

They are a 71-year-old who is in a serious but not life-threatening condition at Queens Hospital, Romford, and a 29-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man are still in Colchester Hospital receiving treatment.

Monday’s crash, in which the Passat collided with a stationary Iveco van in a lay-by, was the third serious crash on the A12 in just eight days, and the second fatality.
