A WOMAN has died a week after a horror smash on the M25 that killed three other people.

Police raced to the scene near Waltham Abbey in Essex last week after a lorry, minibus and car were involved in a pile-up.

Abigaile Muamba, 31, Dexter Augustus, 60, and 59-year-old Jennifer Smith were all declared dead at the scene.

Police today confirmed 44-year-old Lisa Gardiner, who was left fighting for her life after the crash, has now tragically died from her injuries.

All four victims were travelling in the minibus at the time of the horror on August 23.

The driver was held by cops that night but has since been de-arrested after new information came to light.

A 64-year-old lorry driver has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving whilst unfit through drink or drugs.

The motorway was closed in both directions and drivers urged to avoid the area after the horror unfolded.

Inspector Mark Fraser, who leads the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives in this awful incident.

“My officers are working tirelessly to try and piece up what led to the collision.

“If you saw the three vehicles prior to the collision – a Mondeo, a minibus and a lorry – or have any dash cam of their movements, please contact us.

“Three people have lost their lives and we need to get to the bottom of what happened.”

Anyone with information or dashcam footage can call police on 101 quoting incident 972 of Monday 23 August.
