BREAKING NEWS: One person dead in A149 crash
Norfolk police have confirmed that one person has died following the crash involving two cars on the A149 at Sandringham this morning (Monday).
Emergency services were called to the stretch of the main road near the turn-offs to the royal estate at 6.40am today. That section of the A149 has been closed since then with traffic diversions in place.
A Norfolk police spokesman said the road is likely to remain closed for some time. A red Peugeot 107 and a black Peugeot 206 were involved in the collision.
Two fire crews from Sandringham went to the scene at 6.45am to help the police and ambulance crews.
On Saturday afternoon, the A149 was closed in the same stretch near Dersingham while two fire crews from Sandringham used hydraulic rescue equipment to free two people trapped after a four-vehicle collision.
In that instance, at 3.40pm, a woman suffered a slight head injury and there was a significant spillage of oil on the road, the police spokesman said.
The four vehicles involved were a blue Ford Transit van, a blue Ford Focus, a silver Vauxhall Zafira and a silver C4 Citroen. Recovery vehicles were needed for the Vauxhall and Ford Focus, and the road reopened at 5.45pm.
