POLICE in Essex have issued a plea for drivers who were on the A12 at the time of a serious crash to come forward with any information that may help their investigation.

A 47-year-old man remains in a critical condition in hospital after he suffered head injuries when a piece of debris was swept up from the carriageway and crashed through his car windscreen.

The accident happened on Saturday at just before noon and officers have now seized a ford transit truck in connection with the incident.

They have also called for other drivers, namely those driving a white minibus and a white mini that both swerved to avoid the debris, to get in touch.

A spokesman said: “These drivers are potential witnesses and can assist police to piece together the events that led to the crash.

“In addition, officers are keen to hear from anyone who was travelling along the A12 on the London-bound track at around 11.30am to 11.50am who may have information that could assist their inquiries.”

The spokesman said it was too early to confirm if the seized truck was definitely involved but said it had been recovered to enable a forensic examination to take place.

Anyone with information can contact officers at the Stanway Road Policing Unit on 0300 3334444.
