A motorist remains in police custody after an ambulance driver and an elderly patient were killed when an ambulance crashed into a tree in Hampshire.
The car involved in the incident, a blue Seat Alhambra, was also travelling north, according to police. The 25-year-old male driver, from Brockenhurst, was uninjured.
Inspector Kirsty Shannon, of Hampshire Police, said:
This is a very tragic incident and our sympathies are with the families of the ambulance driver and patient.
Clearly, we are in the early stages of our investigation and are examining the events prior to the collision. Contrary to rumours circulating, however, there is no suggestion any wildlife was involved.
I would urge anyone who witnessed the collision or saw either vehicle prior to it to contact us.
