3:56pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
POLICE investigating a fatal crash which killed a young woman on a Hampshire motorway are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
As reported this morning, an 18-year-old woman from Waterlooville died when the blue Ford Ka she was driving collided a crash barrier separating the M27 from the slip road at junction 12, near Cosham last night.
The vehicle overturned and came to rest in the main carriageway. The young woman was the only person in the car.
Sergeant Glen Barham from the Roads Policing unit said: “Sadly, the teenager suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
“At this time, there is nothing to suggest any other vehicles were involved, but it’s important we speak to anyone who was travelling along the M27 at that time who can help with our enquiries.
“We’d like to hear from people who witnessed the collision or saw the vehicle driving prior to it.
“The eastbound carriageway of the motorway was closed from junction 11 for approximately five hours to allow us to investigate the scene and recover the vehicle. I would like to thank any drivers affected by the closure for their patience.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Roads Policing unit, quoting Operation Finisterre, on 101.
