A14 Trimley St Mary: Crash Appeal

8 September 2012, 06:00

Police investigating a double fatal road traffic collision on the A14 at Trimley St Mary are renewing their appeal for witnesses to the incident.

Emergency services were called at around 1.50pm on Monday 20th August with a report that a Fiat Punto car and two lorries had been involved in a collision on the eastbound carriageway, close to the Trimley slip road. 

The female driver of the Punto, 59-year-old Christine Taylor from Clovelly Road, Coventry died at the scene and a teenage boy, 15-year-old William Taylor from Welsh Road, Coventry who was a passenger in the car, was taken to Addenbrookes Hospital with life threatening injuries but later died. 

A second passenger, a man in his sixties, suffered life threatening injuries and was taken to Ipswich Hospital. He has since been transferred to Addenbrookes Hospital where he remains. His condition is described as critical but is making steady progress. 

A 49-year-old man from Dovercourt was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and was taken to the Martlesham Police Investigation Centre. He has since been released on police bail and is due to return on Tuesday 16th October. 

Police have spoken to a number of people who were in the area at the time, but are aware that as this is a busy stretch of road there are likely to be a number of other people who had been travelling along the road that haven't as yet come forward and been spoken to. 

Anyone who was travelling along this stretch of road and saw the vehicles either prior to, or when the collision occurred are asked to call PC Andy Smith at the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
