Police are continuing to investigate a fatal four-vehicle crash on the A17 in west Norfolk in which a woman in her 70s has died.
It has been confirmed that a woman in her 70s died at the scene, following a collision involving two lorries and two cars on the A17 Pullover roundabout, King's Lynn.
A man, also in his 70s, was airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Lynn, where his condition is described as stable.
Fire crews had to use cutting equipment to rescue the man from one of the cars involved.
East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) attended the scene around 2pm on Friday after landing in a nearby field.

Emergency crews, were called to the scene at about 1.20pm.
Traffic was almost at a standstill on Main Road, the old main road from West Lynn to Clenchwarton.
And police were diverting motorists from just before the swing bridge in Sutton Bridge to go through towards Wisbech through Tydd Gote.
But cars along the A1101 Wisbech Road from Long Sutton to Wisbech are crawling along the road, which is not helped by roadworks on the bridge in Wisbech.
The A17 was closed for several hours while officers carried out their investigations and the vehicles were recovered.
Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision and witnesses should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
