‘Losing control’

A man has died in hospital after his car overturned on the M4 in Berkshire.

Five people were seriously injured when their car hit a tree in Surrey. Police said the Ford Focus entered a right-hand bend but the driver "lost control and smashed head-on into a tree".

There was another tragedy on Norfolk's roads at the weekend after a teenager was killed and two people injured in a crash on the A140 near Norwich. Stacey Cutts, 18, from Harleston, died and two other people were being treated in the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital after the accident on the A140 Norwich to Ipswich main road at Tasburgh just before 10pm on Saturday. All three people were travelling in a black Toyota Celica car and police said no other vehicle was involved. The accident, which saw the car crash into trees and fencing near Marlpit Lane, comes just days after another crash on the road through the village which saw two people hospitalised.
