A MAN in his 30s died in hospital three days after his car was involved in a crash in Sawbridgeworth.
Members of all three emergency services were called when, at around 7.20pm on Saturday (Oct 16), a silver Peugeot 207 travelling east along Redricks Lane, towards the main A1184 Sawbridgeworth to Harlow road, left the road on a sharp bend and ended up in a ditch.
The driver, who comes from Hertfordshire, suffered a serious head injury and was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge for treatment. Sadly, he died from his injuries on Tuesday (Oct 19).
Police issued an appeal for witnesses and information on Friday morning (Oct 22).
Detective Constable Neil Crosier, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire serious collision investigation unit, said: “My thoughts are with the man’s family and friends at this very difficult time.
“Our enquiries are continuing to establish the circumstances around what happened. As part of this, we are appealing for anyone who was travelling in the area around the time and may have seen the vehicle, or captured dashcam footage of it prior to the incident, to please contact us.”

I am sorry about the loss of life. Redricks Lane is a disgrace. It should be a designated courtesy road with a sensible speed limit and signage.
