Acle: Woman Dies Following Ditch Crash
A woman has died following a collision on the A47 Acle Straight last night (Wednesday 29 October).
Emergency services were called to the scene just before 7.10pm after two cars travelling in opposite directions were involved in a collision about a mile from Acle.
Both of the cars, a Ford Puma and Skoda Fabia, left the road and came to rest in water filled ditches.
Firefighters removed the Ford from the ditch allowing the driver and passenger to be rescued while the driver of the Skoda was able to escape unaided.
Both drivers were taken to the James Paget University Hospital for treatment while the front seat passenger of the Ford, a woman in her 50s, was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where she later died.
The road was closed for several hours while emergency services carried out initial investigations, cleared the road of debris and recovered the cars. It was reopened just before 12.30am this morning.
Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information concerning the driving manner of either vehicle prior to the collision.
Witnesses should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team (SCIT) at Wymondham on 101.
