Woman dies after her car hits lorry parked in lay-by on A120

Scene of the accident

Part of the A120 in Essex will be closed until at least mid-morning following a fatal accident this morning.

A woman in her 30s driving a Ford Galaxy is believed to have left the road and collided with a lorry transporter parked in a layby. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The A120 is currently closed westbound between B1035 (Horsley Cross) and the A133 at Hare Green, however there is a possibility that we may soon close both directions to allow for important recovery work.

Inspector Rob Brettell said:

“We may be about to close the road in both directions and this will affect people’s journeys, so we are sharing details of the diversion.

“Our officers are working hard at the scene and we will get this route open as quickly as we can.
