Two children have died following the collision yesterday on the A52 at Sandilands
The children aged 6 and 8 years, are brothers and were sat in the rear seat of the Vauxhall Astra. The driver of the Astra, a woman in her 20s, and a third child, who was also in the rear seat remain in hospital with serious injuries. We have family liaison officers supporting the family.
We are appealing for witnesses to the collision or anyone who saw either car before the collision to contact us. We believe the black Vauxhall Astra had travelled south from Sandilands to Huttoft on the A52 just prior to the collision, and the black Audi A4 had travelled north from Huttoft.
We appeal to anyone who was travelling between Sandlilands and Huttoft on the A52 around 3.30 to 3.38 pm on Monday afternoon, and who saw either a black Vauxhall Astra or a black Audi A4 or may have dashcam footage that could assist our investigation to get in touch.
Anyone who believes they can help is asked to email [email protected] or call 01522 212316
Our investigation is at an early stage, and it will take time to conclude what has happened. We understand the impact this will have on the local community and our Neighbourhood Policing Team are working with the boys school to support the friends of those involved.
Superintendent Lee Pache, Head of Specialist Operations, said: “This is so very sad, and I send my deepest condolences to the family and friends of the two boys who have tragically died. I’d like to thank the witnesses who have already come forward and appeal to anyone who saw the collision or vehicle before the crash to get in touch.
“If you were travelling between Huttoft and Sandilands yesterday afternoon between 3.30 and 3.38 which is when the collision happened, we would like to speak to you, especially if you have dashcam that has recorded either vehicle.
“It is early days in our investigation, and we will piece together what has happened. It’s a very difficult investigation and it will take time to work through the facts.”
