Elderly Taunton woman killed in crash on A303

Police are investigating after an elderly woman from Taunton died in a crash on the A303 yesterday.

The woman in her 80's was killed after a Volvo car and a motorhome collided close to Chicklade shortly after 11 yesterday morning.

Her next of kin have been told.

She was driving the motorhome at the time; a dog that was in the motorhome with her was also killed.

Wiltshire Police say the driver of the Volvo suffered minor injuries.

"We are appealing for anyone who saw either vehicle beforehand,or who witnessed the collision, to call PC Charlotte Sartin, from Wiltshire Police's Collision Investigation Unit, on 101," Wiltshire Police say in a statement.

The road was closed in both directions for around five hours yesterday so investigation work could take place and the scene could be cleared.
