A witness appeal has been launched after a 29-year-old man died in a crash near Woolmer Green yesterday.

The fatal collision – involving a black Ford KA – occurred just before 4.58pm yesterday on Heath Road, which connects Woolmer Green with the Welwyn Hatfield hamlet of Oaklands.

Police, the ambulance service, fire brigade and an air ambulance all attended, but the male driver of the KA sadly died from his injuries at the scene. His family have been made aware and are being supported by specially trained officers.

The passenger, a 30-year-old man, sustained serious injuries in the crash and was taken to Lister Hospital in Stevenage.

PC Jackie Lister from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Forensic Collision Investigation Unit said: “We are doing all we can to fully investigate this incident in order to establish what happened prior to the collision.

“I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision or the events leading up to it, to please contact me. I am conscious that many drivers these days have dash cams fitted to their vehicles and may have captured the vehicle being driven immediately prior to the collision. If anyone has footage, this may prove useful to the investigation. Please contact me on Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101 so that I can review it.”
