A driver has died after a crash on a Norfolk road.
Emergency services were called to the B1332 Norwich Road at Hedenham, in the south of the county, at just before 11pm on Sunday, December 9.
A silver Mercedes GL320, which had been travelling in the direction of Norwich, had crashed into a tree as he approached Woodton.
Firefighters from Carrow in Norwich went to the scene and used rescue equipment, but the driver, a man in his 20s, was pronounced dead.
The road was closed and remained shut in both directions on Monday morning.
South Norfolk police tweeted: “Full road closure in both directions - council diversions in place - highways on scene dealing - avoid the area where possible.”
Police would like to hear from anybody who saw the crash, saw the way the car was being driven beforehand, or who has dash-cam evidence.
Witnesses should call the serious collision investigation team at Wymondham on 101, quoting CAD reference 464 of December 9.
