Three die in crash

Thursday, 5th August 1999.

TWO teenage girls and a man were killed and two other passengers in the same car seriously injured, in a crash on the A11.
The girls, aged 14 and 15, were passengers in a Rover 600 car which is believed to have been stationary in a lay-by on the southbound carriageway , just north of Six Mile Bottom.
A Mercedes lorry was in collision with the car at about 4.40pm yesterday.
The girls and the 56-year-old driver of the car were pronounced dead at the scene.
Firefighters worked for more than an hour to release two women, aged 50 and 82, from the Rover. They were taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge with serious injuries.
