Female Airman from Lakenheath dies in Car crash

Post by welshandy » Fri Nov 24, 2017 1:50 pm

This on the BBC
"Further details have been released about a crash on the B1106 in Elveden in the early hours of this morning, in which a female airman from RAF Lakenheath died.

Police say they were called at 00:10 to reports of a single-vehicle collision.

A blue Honda Civic had hit a tree approximately one mile (1.6km) north of the Center Parcs entrance.

Ambulance and fire crews attended, but the woman, aged in her 20s, died at the scene.

A spokesman from the base said the identity of the woman would not be released until 24 hours after next-of-kin had been notified.

She was alone in the car."

The second fatality on Suffolk roads in just a couple of days. Also the second RTA on that stretch of road in a couple of days too.

Okay, she was a US Airman. But beyond that can you also spare a thought for the other circa. 1800 individuals that have already & WILL die before the end of 2017 on UK roads. Pretty sad for all of them too, especially the ones that don't know it yet?
