A woman has died after a serious crash on the A602 in Hitchin on Saturday night, with three other people taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Emerency crews rushed to the scene of the serious two-car crash in Park Way shortly before 9.40pm – with firefighters attending to release some casualties who were trapped.

A police spokeswoman told the Comet this morning that, sadly, a woman in her 40s was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another woman was taken by ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, while two men were taken to Stevenage’s Lister Hospital for further treatment.
