The crash left three people dead, and the driver of a lorry under arrest.
Hampshire Police are appealing for witnesses after three people died in a collision on the A303 on Wednesday (August 25) near Andover.
They are calling for anyone with dashcam footage to come forwards.
Officers were called just after 8.40am to reports of a crash involving a Vauxhall Astra, a Mercedes food delivery van, a Heavy Goods Vehicle and a DAF recovery truck. Sadly, three people, all from separate vehicles, were pronounced dead at the scene. Their families have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.
The driver of the HGV, a 38-year-old man from Donnington, Shropshire, was arrested on suspicion of driving a vehicle while unfit through drugs and causing death by dangerous driving. He’s been released under investigation. The A303 was closed in both directions for the remainder of Wednesday and didn’t re-open until Thursday morning, almost 24-hours later.
Senior Investigating officer DC Cate Paling said: “We are keen to speak with anyone who witnessed the collision, or the moments leading up to it, particularly anyone with dash cam footage. “In the immediate moments after the collision, a small white car with a black roof passed the scene and we believe they may be an important witness who we wish to speak with.”
“Anyone who can assist our enquiries should call 101, quoting the reference 44210338980.”
