Two people from north Essex who died following a serious road traffic collision in Alpheton at the end of last month are being named by police.
Officers were called just after 11.30am on Friday, August 31, to reports of a collision involving a blue Mini Cooper and a gold BMW 325i on the A134 between Alpheton and Lawshall.
The Mini was travelling northbound from Alpheton in the direction of Bury St Edmunds when the collision occurred, with the BMW travelling southbound in the opposite direction.
Regina Brook – known as Gina – aged 79, from Bures Hamlet, and who was the front seat passenger in the BMW died at the scene.
Bruno Delmonte, aged 69, from Great Henny, and who was the driver of BMW, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital with life-threatening injuries, where he later died.
The driver of the Mini – a woman aged in her 30s – remains in a serious condition in hospital having sustained potentially life-changing injuries.
Police are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to the collision, or anyone who saw the manner of driving of either of the vehicles beforehand. Officers would also be interested in hearing from anyone with any dash cam footage of the A134 between Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds prior to 11.30am on Friday 31 August.
Anyone with information should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team at Stowmarket on 101, quoting reference CAD 131 of August 31
