UPDATE: Police appeal for witnesses to serious car crash near Fakenham

Police have today launched an appeal for witnesses to a serious road traffic collision which happened near Fakenham yesterday afternoon.

At approximately 3pm, a green Volvo V40 was travelling from Fakenham towards Dereham on the B1146 Dereham Road, when, close to the junction with Market Hill, between Pudding Norton and Colkirk, it was in collision with a red Audi A4 heading in the opposite direction.

The driver of the Volvo, a local man in his late 40s, received serious leg injuries and the driver of the Audi, a local woman in her mid 30s received chest injuries.

Both were taken to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in an air ambulance and the B1146 was closed both ways at the Dereham Road junction for several hours.
