A man has sadly died after a crash between a car and a bus on a road near Hatfield last night.
Shortly before 7pm, a yellow Vauxhall Corsa and a bus were involved in a collision in St Albans Road West in the Ellenbrook area of the town.
A number of people on the bus sustained injuries and the driver of the Vauxhall – a man in his forties – sadly died at the scene.
Four ambulances, two rapid response vehicles and an ambulance officer, who attended the scene, transported the three people to Lister Hospital for further assessment and care.
Sergeant Tim Davies, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “My thoughts are with the family of the man who has lost his life and they are being supported by specially trained officers.
“I am appealing for anyone who saw what happened, or anyone who has information about the collision, to get in touch. This includes anyone who saw the events leading up the collision.
"We believe the Vauxhall Corsa had driven from the direction of St Albans, along Sandpit Lane. Were you in the area? Did you see the car?
