TWO ambulance crew involved in a head-on collison which left a pensioner dead have been discharged from the QEII hospital in Welwyn Garden City.

The driver, a 43-year old woman from Bedfordshire and her passsenger, a 33 year-old woman from Welwyn Garden City , were rushed to hospital after the emergency vehicle collided with a red Vauxhall Corsa on the A1000 Great North Road just south of Hatfield on Saturday.

The driver of the Corsa, an 81-year-old woman from Essendon, died from her injuries.

Police want to speak to a female driver called Joanne, who stopped at the scene of the fatal accident and spoke to the ambulance crew.

Anyone with any information should contact Police Constable Charlotte Van Pooss on 0845 330022.
