Fatal collision on A303

We’re appealing for witnesses to a fatal collision on the A303 Norton junction at about 6pm on Friday (23 March).

It’s believed that this was a one-vehicle collision, involving a Mercedes E220, which left the eastbound carriageway and came to rest in a ditch.

Sadly the 70-year-old man who was driving the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed.

We are not in a position to the name the deceased until formal identification procedures are completed.

We would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision, including anyone with dashcam footage.

If you have any information relating to this case, please call 101 quoting reference ‘44180109159’, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
