Three people killed in horror four-vehicle crash with HGV driver arrested
Three people have been killed in a horror crash in Hampshire, with a lorry driver arrested. The smash involved a Vauxhall Astra, a Mercedes food delivery van, a HGV and a DAF recovery truck. Three people from separate vehicles died in the crash, which took place on the A303 near Andover at around 8.40am yesterday.
A 38-year-old lorry driver from Donnington, Shropshire, was arrested on suspicion of driving a vehicle while unfit through drugs and causing death by dangerous driving. South Central Ambulance Service was called to the scene at 8.41am. A spokesman said: “We sent to the scene three ambulance officers, an ambulance crew and the Critical Care Car from the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.”
Police are appealing for information about the incident. 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.” The families of those who died in the crash have been informed and are receiving support from specialist officers. We’ll be bringing you the very latest updates, pictures and video on this breaking news story.
