There has been another crash at the A47 accident black spot at Hockering this morning, the third in the last six days.
Emergency services were called to the junction with Sandy Lane at around 6.15am, following a crash involving two cars.
Fire engines from Carrow, Dereham and Earlham all attended because of smoke coming from one of the cars, although weren’t required to do anything at the scene in the end.
The cars were moved to the side of the road by 6.30am and debris in the road was cleared by 7am, allowing delays in both directions of the A47 to ease.
An East of England Ambulance service rapid response vehicle attended and a man in his 40s was examined and found to have no injuries.
The crash was on the same single-carriageway stretch of the A47 at Hockering where a mother and daughter from Little Fransham were killed, around 200m from the junction with Low Road, on Saturday afternoon.
Billie-Jean Roberts, 48, and her daughter Annie Huizar, 19, were killed when their white Ford Ka was in collision with a Mercedes CLX at around 3.50pm.
While five people were also injured after a crash involving two cars and a van on the same single-carriageway stretch of the A47 at Hockering, just before 11am yesterday.
Two people were taken to hospital with minor injuries and three people treated and discharged at the scene.
