Woman dies following crash on A11 last week

A woman has died following a road traffic collision on the A11 near Mildenhall.

Police were called shortly after 10.30am on Wednesday, June 1, following reports of a three-vehicle collision.

A Land Rover Defender and a lorry, both travelling on the southbound carriageway, were in collision between Elveden and Barton Mills. Both vehicles overturned and the lorry crossed the central reservation where it was then in collision with a Porsche travelling in the opposite direction.

The driver of the Porsche sustained serious injuries and was taken by air ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, where she died yesterday, Friday, June 3.

Pending a formal coroner’s inquest proceedings, the deceased has been provisionally identified as Catherine Moore, aged 73, from Ware, in Hertfordshire.

The driver of the lorry, a man aged in his 50s, was taken to West Suffolk Hospital, in Bury St Edmunds, having sustained injuries that are not believed to be serious.

The collision caused extensive damage to the central reservation barrier and the A11 was closed in both directions until approximately 5.30am on Thursday, June 2.

Officers are appealing for any witnesses and asking anyone who was driving in the area with a dashcam fitted in their vehicle to review the footage for anything that may be of assistance.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, quoting reference 37/33671/22.
