An elderly woman has died after a car left the road and crashed into a tree in Stevenage last night.

Emergency services were called to the A602, Broadhall Way, at about 5.20pm yesterday after a silver Ford Fusion crashed near to the junction with Hertford Road.

A woman in her 80s, who was sitting in the back of the car, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver and front seat passenger, a woman and man in their 80s, were injured and taken to Stevenage’s Lister Hospital.

The road was closed until around 9.50pm while a police investigation took place, although it is not yet clear why the car veered off the A602.
