Man dies in hospital after crash on countryside road

A man has died after being involved in a crash in Leicestershire. Three other men were seriously injured in the two-vehicle collision, which happened in Husbands Bosworth near Lutterworth[1].

A blue Vauxhall Corsa and a white Vauxhall Vivaro van were involved in the crash on the A5199 Welford Road near to the junction with Station Road on Friday (March 15), Leicestershire Police[2] said. The rear seat passenger of the Corsa, a man in his 20s, was taken to hospital and died a short time later.

The force was called to the scene at 12.35pm. The drivers of both vehicles and the front seat passenger of the Corsa – who are all men in their 20s – were also taken to hospital with serious injuries.

The front seat passenger of the Corsa is currently being treated in hospital for possible life changing injuries, the force said. The injuries of both drivers are not believed to be life threatening or life changing, it added.

Detectives from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, are appealing for witnesses. DC Paul Hicks said: “At the time of the collision, the Corsa was travelling south east along Station Road towards Welford Road A5199 and the Vivaro was travelling north along Welford Road A5199 towards Husbands Bosworth.

“I would like to appeal to anyone who may have seen the vehicles beforehand or the collision itself to get in touch. Alternatively, anyone who has any dash cam footage which may have captured something related, is also urged to make contact with us.”
