Fatal crash on A12 latest
POLICE are continuing to ascertain the cause of a fatal road crash on the A12.
The collision happened near Marks Tey when the woman was struck by a white Toyota Auris on the southbound carriageway at 1am on Saturday.
The 29-year-old woman from the Romford area was certified dead at the scene.
The 44-year-old female car driver, who lives in the Marks Tey area, was treated for shock by paramedics at the scene.
