A 34-year-old man has died following a three- collision on the A6 in Leicestershire, which involved an on-duty police officer.
The crash, which happened shortly before 4pm on Friday (October 7), involved a silver Peugeot 107, which was travelling towards Market Harborough, a grey Peugeot 308 and a silver Vauxhall Corsa, which were both travelling towards Kibworth Harcourt.
The driver of the Peugeot 308 – a 34 year-old man – was taken to hospital but died a short time later.
The occupants of the other two cars, one of which included an on-duty police officer, received minor injuries.
As the collision involved an on-duty police officer, who was driving the Corsa, a mandatory referral will be made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).
Detectives from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are appealing for motorists with dash cam footage to come forward.
“The collision happened on a busy road at a busy time of day, so I would ask any witnesses to come forward,” said Detective Sergeant Jon Putnam, the investigating officer.
“Our investigation into this collision is in its early stages – and I would like to speak to anyone who saw what happened but has not yet come forward.
“I’m particularly keen to speak to any motorists with a dash cam in their vehicle or who saw any of the vehicles involved prior to the collision occurring.”
