Drivers are being urged to take care after four young men died on the roads in Hertfordshire in the space of just 24 hours.

Three young men died in a crash on the A10 when their blue Vauxhall Corsa collided with a lorry between the Turnford and Hoddesdon junctions on Friday 9th November. The driver and two passengers died, a third passenger was taken to a London hospital with serious injuries. The lorry driver was unhurt.

Early on Saturday a pedestrian was in collision with a vehicle along the A505 Baldock to Royston road and a young man was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

The East of England Ambulance Service said its thoughts were with the families of the four men. Spokesman Gary Sanderson is urging people across the region to take care on the roads this Autumn.

We are asking everyone out driving to take care and watch your speed. There are a lot of fallen leaves on the road and we have experienced heavy rainfall which can make the roads hazardous to drive on.
