Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision involving a young mother and her baby on the A140 near Diss.
Emergency services were called to the scene at around 4.15pm yesterday, following a report that a Peugeot 306 car and a Mercedes LGV had been in collision on the A140 at Brome, near to the junction of the B1077.
The female driver of the Peugeot, aged in her 20s and from the Diss area, was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with serious injuries but sadly died earlier today.
Her baby, who was also taken to hospital to be checked over, is said to be fine.
The male lorry driver was uninjured.
A section of the road was closed while emergency services dealt with the incident and the vehicles involved were recovered.
Police would like to hear from anyone who was travelling along the A140 who saw the vehicles involved prior to the accident, or when the collision occurred.
Calls should be made to PC Danny Ormes at Suffolk Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
Nearly 3,000 people have supported a Facebook campaign demanding safety improvements on the A47 near Dereham set up after the latest fatal crash.
