DID YOU STOP AT THE SCENE OF ROAD TRAFFIC COLLISION?
By Corporate Communication Dept

POLICE are appealing for a potential key witness to a fatal road traffic collision which occurred on the A1000, Great North Road, Hatfield to contact them.

The incident occurred at around 10am on Saturday, January 5, when a red Vauxhall Corsa was in collision with an ambulance, which was answering a non-emergency call.

As a result of the collision, the driver of the Corsa, an 81-year-old woman from Essendon sadly died as a result of her injuries.

The ambulance crew, were taken to the QEII Hospital. The driver, a 43-year-old woman from Bedfordshire received treatment for an ankle injury, while the passenger, a 33-year-old-woman from Welwyn Garden City, received treatment for chest injuries. They have both now been released.

It is believed that a female driver called ‘Joanne’ stopped at the scene of the incident to help and spoke to the ambulance crew. This woman is asked to come forward as a potential witness and help police with their inquiries.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or knows anything about it, is asked to contact PC Charlotte Van Pooss on 0845 33 00 222.
