Police investigating a triple fatal collision in Braintree need to trace the drivers of two vehicles who may be witnesses.

The collision in Gosfield Road happened at around 4.50pm on Sunday, December 7, and involved a blue Volkswagen Polo being driven by Corran Powell, from Gosfield, and a blue Ford Fiesta being driven by David Bradley, from Braintree.

Both drivers died as a result of the collision, as did a passenger in the Polo, James Simmons, from Braintree.

Officers investigating the collision are looking to trace two drivers who may have witnessed the collision or seen the vehicles before it took place.

The first is a man described as being in his 50s, wearing glasses and driving a silver or grey Ford Mondeo with an 09 number plate.

He would have travelled from the High Garret direction on to Braintree Road. He is believed to have come across the collision and spoke to another man who had been driving a Ford Focus C Max.

The second is a woman who is described as possibly being French. She also came across the collision and spoke to another woman, asking her to phone the police.

She had dark, bobbed hair and wore jeans and a horizontal striped top. She was driving a people carrier and was heading in the Braintree direction.

Police also hope to speak to the driver of a small silver car, possibly a Vauxhall Meriva, which was travelling in Broad Road where another vehicle drove parallel with it for some time.

These drivers, or anyone who knows who they are, should contact officers at the serious collision investigation unit at Essex Police on 101.
