Appeal for witnesses following the death of two teenagers in A30 collision
Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision in Basingstoke this morning.
Officers were called just before 5am (Wednesday, 28 March) after a member of the public reported seeing a vehicle on the side of the A30 eastbound.
The car, a white Fiat 500, had collided with trees just past the Hatch pub.
The driver of the vehicle and her passenger, both 18-year-old women, were pronounced dead at the scene.
Their next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.
Investigations into the exact circumstances of the collision are ongoing and as a result the road remains closed.
Sgt Andy Noble, from the Joint Roads Policing Unit, said: “We are working hard to establish exactly what happened to cause this collision.
“At this stage we do not know what time the collision happened, so we would like to hear from anyone who drove eastbound along that road between 9.50pm last night and 5am this morning.
“We particularly want to speak to anyone who has done that journey who has a dash cam, as we believe this will help us to narrow down the time of the incident.
“We would also like to speak to anyone who saw a white Fiat 500 driving in the area between those times, so please get in touch.”
If you have any information relating to this case, please call 101 quoting reference ‘44180114591’, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
