Orsett: Woman Dies In Three Car Crash
A 22 year old woman has died after three cars collided in Orsett.
It happened where the A1089 Dock Approach Road joins the A13 yesterday afternoon (Saturday December 15th).
A BMW collided with a VW Golf and then struck a Vauxhall Astra.
The Golf left the road to the nearside, struck a lamp post and rolled down a steep embankment.
A 21 year old man, who was driving the Golf, has suffered serious chest and shoulder injuries and was taken by ambulance to The Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel. His passengers were a 22 year old woman from north London and a three year old girl from Grays. The woman was certified dead at the scene of the crash. The three year old girl was also taken to The Royal London Hospital where she is being treated for minor injuries.
The people in the Vauxhall Astra were a couple in their 60s from Tilbury. The male driver was conveyed to Basildon Hospital with minor injuries, and his female passenger was uninjured.
The BMW car contained two men aged 20 from Tilbury and 21 from Stanford Le Hope who were both arrested. The 20 year old was later released on bail. The 21 year old man remains in police custody to be further question on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
The A1098 on slip to the A13 London bound track was shut for approx seven hours while the collision was investigated and the vehicles recovered.
Anyone who witnessed the crash or the moments leading up to the collision is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation unit on 101 or email email@example.com.
A man has been jailed for life to serve a minimum of 25 years for murdering an uncle as he attempted to protect his niece from unwanted advances in Basildon.
Tributes have been paid to a woman who died following a collision in North Weald.
