Serious collision closes A339 through Newbury

POLICE are appealing for information after a man died in a serious collision on the A339 in Newbury on Saturday morning.

Police confirmed the 29-year-old driver of a blue BMW 3 Series car died at the scene and are now appealing for witnesses.

There were no other cars involved in the incident and no-one else was injured.

The man's next of kin has been informed but formal identification is yet to take place.

Emergency services were called to the scene at around 7.40am following the incident which resulted in the road being closed in both directions between the Burger King roundabout and the Tesco roundabout.

The footbridge was also closed to pedestrians.

Anyone with any information about the collision should call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit via the Thames Valley Police 24-hour enquiry line, 101, quoting URN 258 9/1.

Alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A spokesperson for South Central Ambulance Service said: "We were called at 7.47 this morning to an incident on the A339.

"The incident involved a single car that had rolled over with one person suffering serious injuries."
