Two dead following horror smash
A ROAD has been reopened following a serious crash near Bury St Edmunds today.One person was taken to West Suffolk Hospital by air ambulance with “life-threatening” injuries following the accident which involved a tanker and a car.
A DRIVER and passenger were killed when their car was involved in a horrific accident with a 40-tonne lorry on a village road today.
The man and woman were both pronounced dead at the scene after being cut free from the wreckage of their red Fiat Panda, which collided with a French Daff lorry on the A134 at Great Barton, near Bury St Edmunds, around 1.15pm.
It brings the number of people killed this year on Suffolk's roads to 21 and follows an accident on Wednesday in which a 38-year-old lorry driver was killed when his articulated vehicle overturned on a roundabout outside the Port of Felixstowe.
The A134 was closed for several hours after the accident and diversions were put in place.
