Two people killed in Alpheton road collision named

By Newsdesk Sudbury

Two people killed in a road traffic accident in Alpheton at the end of last month have been named by police.

Regina Brook, 79, and Bruno Delmonte, 69, were travelling in the same gold BMW when the accident happened on the A134 between Alpheton and Lawshall on Friday, August 31.

The female driver of a blue Mini Cooper, who has not been named, remains in a serious condition in hospital with potentially life-changing injuries.

The Mini was travelling from Alpheton in the direction of Bury St Edmunds when the collision occurred, with the BMW travelling in the opposite direction.

Although police said Mr Delmonte was from Great Henny, it is understood that he lived in Bures Hamlet, where his sister also lived.

He was said to do gardening for Mrs Brook, a widow, and would take her to hospital appointments.

Police were called just after 11.30am to reports of a collision between a Mini and BMW on the A134.

Mrs Brook, who was the front seat passenger in the BMW, died at the scene.

Mr Delmonte, who was the driver, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital with life-threatening injuries, but later died.

Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the collision, or anyone who saw the manner of driving of either vehicles beforehand.

Anyone with information should contact the serious collision investigation team at Stowmarket on 101, quoting reference CAD 131.
