Avon and Somerset Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision at Somerton.
The incident happened yesterday (Sunday 28 October) at 4.37pm on the B3153, near to the junction with the B3151.
A Ford Escort was travelling along the B3153 from Kingweston towards Somerton. Whilst negotiating a left-hand bend it is reported to have crossed the centre line and was in collision with a car travelling in the opposite direction.

The driver of the Escort – a woman – was given treatment at the scene but sadly died shortly afterwards.
The road was closed to enable collision investigators to carry out a detailed investigation of the scene. The road was re-opened shortly before 2.30am the following morning.
