A woman in her early fifties from the Swaffham area died at the crash between Draytonhall Lane and the A1075.

She was a passenger in a green Peugeot 406 travelling towards Norwich, and the driver of the car is said to be a woman also from the Swaffham area aged 30 who did not suffer serious injuries.

A man in his 20s was driving in the opposite direction in a red Skoda is thought to be from Dereham.

His condition is described as serious but improving by police as he is being treated at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with head, lung and arm injuries.

Police say, four days after the crash, that they still want to speak to the driver of a small black Peugeot 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.

Police say they also want to hear from the driver of the white lorry, which appeared to have something fluorescent on one of its wing mirrors and also failed to stop.

Anyone with information about the crash should call police on 101.
