A young mother who died in a crash on the A140 on the Norfolk-Suffolk border has been named by police today.

Emergency services were called to the scene of the collision at around 4.15pm on Tuesday following a report that a Peugeot 306 car and a Mercedes LGV had been in collision on the A140 at Brome, near Diss, near to the junction of the B1077.

The driver of the Peugeot has this afternoon been named as Jessica Winterborn, aged 24, from Harleston, in south Norfolk.

She was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and died of her injuries on Wednesday. Her baby, who was also taken to hospital to be checked over, was not injured and the truck driver was uninjured.

The A140 was closed for several hours following the crash.

Suffolk Police are renewing their appeal for witnesses and would like to hear from anyone who was travelling along the A140 who saw the vehicles involved prior to, or when the collision occurred.

Calls should be made to PC Danny Ormes at Suffolk Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
