A WOMAN died and another is fighting for her life after a car accident involving two vehicles in Slip End on Saturday (January 21).

The women, who are believed to be sisters from Dunstable, were involved in a collision with a second car in Newlands Road at 2.07pm.

The driver of a blue Renault Clio, a 26-year-old woman was taken to Addenbrookes Hospital for treatment to serious internal injuries and her 31-year-old passenger died at the scene.
