Two ambulances, the air ambulance, a rapid response vehicle and a paramedic manager were sent to the crash scene.
Dean Jay, paramedic, said: “The van came to rest upside down in a field after going over a ditch and the car had suffered massive damage and there was a fire in the engine.
“The woman driver was in a state of cardiac arrest and had suffered multiple injuries. The crews managed to get her heart restarted before flying her to Colchester General Hospital in a critical condition.
“A trauma team was awaiting her arrival. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of ambulance and hospital staff, she died later.”
An Essex Police spokesman said the road had been closed for about four hours after the accident.
