A ROAD where a 20-year-old man was killed in a car crash on Saturday afternoon had to be closed again after another accident.

At about 3.30pm on Sunday, two cars collided on the northbound carriageway of Essex Yeomanry Way in Great Baddow.

Emergency services had to close both sides of the road following the incident, causing traffic delays in the area.

The two drivers involved received what Essex Police have described as "serious, but non-life threatening injuries".

The accident happened just over a day after another crash on the same stretch of road.

In this incident, a 20-year-old male from South Woodham Ferrers, who has not been officially identified yet but named locally as Kailen Spreadbury, was killed.

The red Ford Fiesta he was a passenger in crossed the central reservation and collided with a black Vauxhall Vectra.

The 18-year-old female driver of the Fiesta was airlifted to the Royal London Hospital where she is in a critical but stable condition.

A nine-month-old baby who was also in the same car was taken to Broomfield Hospital as a precaution but has been released uninjured.

The 64-year-old driver of the Vectra is in Broomfield Hospital in a stable condition and the passenger is a serious but stable condition in Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

Anyone with information about this crash is urged to contact Pc Pete Harris at the Essex Police Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101 or email collisionappeal@essex.pnn.police.uk.
