    By Lauren Grice

    The victim of a car crash in Lowestoft has been revealed as 74-year-old David Wright.

    Police were called to the scene of a collision yesterday (February 18th) near the Foxburrow Public House on Yarmouth Road at around 9pm.

    A Renault Megane reportedly collided with two pedestrians and Mr Wright, of Gainsborough Drive, was found to have suffered fatal injuries.

    He was taken to James Paget Hospital, where he later died. A woman in her 70s was also retrieved from the scene and is currently in a critical condition at the facility.

    A 27-year-old woman, also from the Lowestoft area, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving in relation to the incident and has since been released on bail. She is due to return to the Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre on April 7th.

    A man and two children who were also crossing the road at the time were unharmed during the incident.

    Suffolk Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident and anyone with information should call Sergeant Julian Ditcham on 101.
