7 Year Old Boy Escapes Crash

A 34-year-old woman has died but her son escaped from the wreckage after a head on car crash.

She was driving a black Ford Focus on the B4525 at Greatworth in Northants on Monday at 8.35pm when it was hit by a blue X-Type Jaguar travelling in the opposite direction.

The impact caused the Focus to catch fire. The woman, who lived locally, died but her son, who was a passenger, managed to free himself.

The driver and passenger of the Jaguar, both from the Towcester area, were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Northants police are appealing for witnesses.
