The crash happened at around 1.20am today, October 12, when is it thought a Ford Galaxy left the road and hit a lorry transporter parked in a layby.

The driver, a woman in her 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

Nobody else was injured in the collision.

The A120 was closed for a number of hours in the westbound direction between B1035 (Horsley Cross) and the A133 at Hare Green. It reopened shortly after 10.30am.

Inspector Rob Brettell said: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the family of the woman who died this morning.

“We would like to speak to anyone who may have dash cam footage or saw a blue Ford Galaxy in the area of Elmstead Market in the time leading to the collision.

“We’d also like to see any dash cam from anyone using the A120 before the collision, and who may have footage of the vehicles parked in the laybys.”
