Two Teenagers Killed After Car Hits Deer
Two teenage girls have been killed in a road crash after their car hit a deer and caught fire.
Hertfordshire Police said the collision occurred on the northbound carriageway of the A10 between Ware and the A120 Puckeridge exit at around 7.45am on Tuesday.
The Citroen C1 car in which Daniela Ruggiero, 18 from Hoddesdon, and a 17-year-old girl were travelling hit a deer and then a Volvo V40 collided with their car, which caught fire.
The girls died at the scene while the driver of the Volvo, thought to be in his 50s, was taken to hospital with leg injuries.
An air ambulance attended the accident, and the road remained shut into the afternoon.
As many as 74,000 deer are thought to be involved in vehicle collisions every year. More than 450 people are injured every year in such accidents.
