Following enquiries, detectives from Leicestershire Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are appealing for the occupants of two cars to come forward.

They would like to identify the occupants of a metallic red Mercedes A-Class hatchback and a dark-coloured Volkswagen Tiguan, which were both travelling along Peatling Road and Ashby Road – in the direction of Peatling Parva – moments before the collision occurred.

Detective Sergeant Jon Putnam, from the SCIU, said: “Our investigation is continuing and from what we know so far, I believe the occupants of both these cars may have seen what happened – but they have not yet spoken to police.

“I’m appealing for those people to get in touch as I believe they are key witnesses who could assist us with further enquiries. If you were in one of those vehicles, then please contact us.”
