Crash closes major Hampshire road

TWO people have died after a car crash on a major Hampshire road this evening.

The man and a woman, believed to be pensioners, were travelling southbound on the A34 when their car careered off the road, at Three Maids Hill, just after 6.30pm, ending up on its roof.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the man, who sustained serious injuries, was taken to Southampton General Hospital, but sadly died a short time later.

The road is expected to be closed until the early hours of this morning as officers carry out their investigations to establish what caused the car to come off the carriageway.

It is not believed that any other vehicle was involved.

The road closure, between the A303 at Upper Bullington and the A33 at Kings Worthy, is causing traffic misery for hundreds of motorists heading south tonight, with drivers being diverted to the A303 north, to get onto the M3.

Police are still trying to identify the victims and trace next of kin.

Sad to hear of yet more deaths on our roads but where is 'Three Meads Hill'?
