A12 lorry crash: Police check for further fatalities

Police in Essex say they’re checking there were no other fatalities involved in a lorry crash earlier this week. A HGV plunged off a bridge over the A12 at Witham and on to the road below on Wednesday. The driver was killed.

Due to the severe damage to the lorry, Essex Police said it was being searched to check for other victims.

One lane of the A12 southbound carriageway has now reopened.

As there was extensive damage to the vehicle, work is also being carried out to ensure that there have been no other casualties as a result of the collision.

The trailer has been forensically recovered by the multi-agency response team and is being searched to ensure that there are no other fatalities.
