Police appeal for information following fatal car crash

Leicestershire Police investigating a fatal road collision are appealing for information.

The crash happened in Gartree Road, Oadby, last night at around 6:30pm.

The passenger from the Peugeot 406 Estate involved in the crash suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the car was treated at hospital, but has since been discharged.

A 52-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the crash and remains in police custody.

At 6:30pm there would have still been some sunlight and we are hopeful that this means that anyone who saw the collision, or the car prior to it, will be able to help us.
