Man dies in Billericay after car hits wall

A man has died and three others were injured when a car hit a wall and a electricity pole in Essex.

The men, in their late teens and early 20s, were hurt when their Ford Fiesta left the road in Western Road, Billericay at about 01:50 BST.

One man was helped from the overturned car. Fire crews cut the other men free.

The three surviving men were taken to Basildon Hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries, an Essex Police spokesman said.

Several homes were left without power after the crash in which power lines were brought down.

The men were from the Romford and Basildon area.
