A 20-year-old from Biggleswade has been “provisionally identified” as having died in a three-vehicle smash on the A120 in Essex last week, police said today.

Essex Police said they were “now in a position to provisionally identify” the driver who died in the crash near Coggeshall, just after 7am on September 18, as Biggleswade’s Robbie Trundley.

Paying tribute, Mr Trundley’s family have said: “He was much loved and is missed by everyone who knew him.”

The crash happened at Salmons Corner, east of Coggeshall. Police said it was thought a white Ford Fiesta was heading east along the A120 towards Colchester when it was involved in a head-on collision with an HGV travelling in the opposite direction.

Officers said a Ford Transit flatbed van, which had been travelling behind the Fiesta, then also collided with the HGV.

The driver of the flatbed van remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital. Both the driver of the HGV and a passenger in the white Fiesta were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

The tragedy saw the road between Colchester and Braintree closed throughout last Tuesday. Police said no arrests had been made as of this afternoon.
