AN INVESTIGATION was under way last night after two people were killed in a horror crash on the A134.

A man and a woman died after their cars collided with another vehicle at Barnham, near Thetford, at about 3.15pm yesterday.

Police had not released the names of the crash victims last night but it is believed the man is from the Bury St Edmunds area.

Emergency services were called to the scene after a blue Honda Civic was involved in a crash with a red Volkswagen Golf and a green Rover 214.

Fire crews from Bury and Ixworth tired to free the drivers of the Honda and the Volkswagen cars, who were both heavily trapped, but they were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Rover was unhurt, only suffering from shock.

Police said the Volkswagen car was registered to Norwich while the Honda was registered to Thetford.

Following the incident the A134 was closed off to traffic at the Barnham crossroads to the south and at Rymer Point to the north for several hours while the bodies were recovered and crash investigators gathered evidence. Traffic was diverted back to Barnham towards Ixworth.

A coroner's ambulance took the bodies away from the scene.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police urged anyone who may have witnessed the crash to get in touch with them.

Anyone with information should call PC Roy Dade at the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
