Swindon RTA: Two dead

Two young women have died after a car came off the road in Swindon. Three others are seriously injured in hospital. The Renault Clio car left the road on the A419 and the vehicle was discovered by officers twenty metres from the road in undergrowth just after five o'clock this morning.

There were five occupants - three young men and two young women - all from the Swindon area and aged 19 or 20. The 19-year-old female driver was pronounced dead at the scene. A second female was later pronounced dead at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon.

Two of the male passengers are described as being "very poorly" at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol. A third male is being treated for his injuries at GWH.
