A driver who was in a critical condition following a crash on the A505 near Royston on Sunday has died.

Alessandro Zarrelli – of Ffordd Sain Ffwyst, Llanfoist, Abergavenny – was driving his blue Mini One from Royston towards Duxford on the A505 at about 8.55am when it was involved in a collision with a brown Volkswagen Caddy.

The 34-year-old was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, where he was in a critical condition. Police have now confirmed he died yesterday afternoon as a result of his injuries.

Police closed the stretch of the A505 – from the A10 roundabout to the junction for the M11 at Duxford – while emergency services attended and the road was cleared, it was reopened by 2.30pm.

Anybody who saw the collision, or the vehicles leading up to it, is asked to contact the Beds, Cambs and Herts Road Policing Unit on 101 quoting incident 110 of November 18.
