A car also crashed and caught on fire on the A120 near Braintree at around 5am on Thursday, which is on the diversion route around the closed A12. Everything we know about the A12 lorry crash so far[2] The A12 crash happened at around 3.40pm on Wednesday (February 8) at Coleman’s Bridge at Witham, on the B1389.

The A12 is closed on the southbound carriageway between the junction for Marks Tey (junction 25) and the Boreham Interchange (junction 19). The B1389 between Little Braxted Lane and Eastways junctions is also closed in both directions. The condition of the occupant of the lorry is not yet known.
