Police say drivers and their passengers are key to the accident investigation.

Officers investigating a fatal collision on the A30 at Yard Cross, near Monkton, yesterday (Wednesday) have made a further appeal for witnesses to come forward.

An 18-year-old local girl died at the scene and the investigation into the cause of the crash is continuing.

A police spokesman said: “We are aware that a number of vehicles were travelling along the A30 towards Honiton from the direction of the Devon and Somerset border at the time of the collision, 9.26am.

“These vehicles were travelling directly behind a Renault Clio when it was involved in the collision with a goods vehicle travelling in the opposite direction away from Honiton.

“The drivers and passengers within these vehicles are key to the investigation and police would like to hear from these drivers and passengers, or anyone else, who may be able to assist with this enquiry.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police on 08452 777444 quoting police reference 219 250810.
