Appeal for witnesses to double fatal crash

The police are appealing for witnesses after an elderly couple, both in their eighties, died in a car crash on the A47 at Wendling near Dereham in Norfolk. It happened yesterday afternoon when two vehicles collided head on.

An air ambulance was called to the scene but the female passenger in one of the vehicles died before she could be taken to hospital. The driver of that car died later in hospital. The driver of the other vehicle, a woman in her sixties, was also badly hurt.
