A Shropshire HGV driver has been arrested after three people died in a collision in Hampshire. It happened on the A303 yesterday (August 25) near Andover. Police were called just after 8.40am to a report of a collision involving a Vauxhall Astra, a Mercedes food delivery van, a HGV 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 HGV driver, 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 has been released under investigation while our enquiries continue. 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.
