Police are urgently trying to contact witnesses who have not yet come forward to a serious road crash in Essex.
It happened on the A131 at High Garrett, between Braintree and Halstead, at 2.15pm on Sunday February 9.
A woman was air-lifted to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridgeshire with life-threatening injuries after a collision occurred between a black Ford KA and a black Mercedes convertible.
The driver of the Mercedes and a passenger from the Ford were taken to Broomfield Hospital but later released.
The woman remains in a critical condition in hospital and we are unable to speak to her. We are, therefore, very keen to speak to other motorists who were in the area at the time and may have seen the collision between these two vehicles or witnessed events leading up to it. We believe there was a queue of traffic at the location when this happened and I am confident that there were people sitting in their cars who have valuable information for our investigation."
