A man in his 40s remains in hospital in a critical condition after a fatal collision in Scarning on Monday.

The collision occurred on Dereham Road at just after 9.30am when a black Jeep Cherokee crashed.

A man in his 40s died following the crash, and a second man was taken to hospital.

No other vehicles were involved.

Police said one of the men was pronounced dead at the scene. The other man, also in his 40s, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with serious head injuries.

His condition is described as critical.

The road was closed between the Greenbanks Hotel and Carr Lane while emergency services attended and motorists were advised to avoid the area.

The road did not reopen until about 4.30pm.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who saw the crash or who may have any dash camera footage showing what happened.
