Witness appeal to fatal collision - Leamington/Kenilworth
Main article content
Officers investigating a fatal collision between Leamington and Kenilworth are asking for witnesses to come forward.
It happened around 4.40pm on Tuesday (2 January) on the A452 Kenilworth Road just outside Leamington.
A VW caddy van was being driven when it is understood to have left the road, flipped, and ended up in a ditch around half a mile before the Ramada Hotel.
Emergency services including fire and ambulance attended the scene along with police officers but sadly, despite their best efforts, the driver - a woman in her 50s - was pronounced deceased.
A man, who was a passenger in the van, was assessed by paramedics before being released without injury.
The woman's next of kin has been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers from the force.
Enquiries are continuing and we're encouraging anyone who was travelling along the stretch of road that saw the incident, the moments prior to the collision, or the manner in which the VW was being driven to speak to us.
If you have information or footage that can help our ongoing investigation, please contact the force quoting incident 252 of 2 January.
