A man who was seriously injured in a crash on the A47 in Norfolk, in which a woman died, has offered a reward for information to find another driver involved.
Andrew Scottow, from Dereham, was driving a red Skoda Felicia westbound along the A47 at Dereham on Thursday 14 February 2013 at 10.30am when he swerved to avoid a black car which police say was driving erratically. This caused Andrew to lose control of his vehicle and he was involved in a head on collision with a green Peugeot 406 travelling in the opposite direction.
52 year old Mrs Kim Utting (pictured), from Swaffham, who was a passenger in the green Peugeot died and her daughter, who was driving, suffered minor injuries. Mr Scottow suffered serious injuries and was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital directly from the crash and then transferred to Addenbrookes, where he remained for several weeks.
Despite numerous press appeals, the identity of the black car is still unknown. Mr Scottow is offering a £10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in connection with the crash.
Andrew Scottow said: "Someone knows who the driver of that black car was. I want them to think about what the result of that driver's actions has been to Mrs Utting's family, my long term injuries, and hopefully, with a bit of incentive, they will come forward and do the right thing."
Officers are keen to speak to anyone with further information about the two drivers of vehicles which were seen in the area at the time of the collision. The first is the driver of a small black hatchback car which was seen driving erratically towards Norwich and failed to stop at the scene. It overtook the green Peugeot and a white long flatbed lorry.
The second is the driver of the white lorry, which appeared to have something fluorescent on one of its wing mirrors and also failed to stop at the scene.
Anyone who witnessed the collision or the manner of driving of any of the vehicles involved should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
