Appeal for witnesses after collision in Fareham

Police officers were called at around 12.40am to reports of a collision involving a Ford Fiesta that had left the carriageway.

A passenger, a 21-year-old woman from Fareham, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver, a 22-year-old man from Paulsgrove, was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital to be treated for his injuries.

They are described as serious but not life threatening.

Police are investigating the exact circumstances of the collision and want to speak to anyone with information.

Officers particularly want to speak with the driver of a silver Ford Transit van who is believed to have seen the Fiesta travelling along the road prior to the collision and then came across the crash scene.

Inspector Andrew Tester, of the Roads Policing Unit, said:

“We are grateful for the responses we have already received from our earlier appeal, but we would like to continue our appeal for witnesses to this tragic incident.

“From witnesses in the area, we believe a light coloured Ford Transit style van was behind the Fiesta on Downend Road before the collision.

“I am now making a direct appeal to the driver and any other occupants of that van to please make contact with the police.

“Whether you saw anything or not, it helps us build a picture of what happened leading up to the collision.

If you have any information, or dash cam footage, please call 101 quoting Operation Sedge or 44200230693.
