Two men were pronounced dead at the scene and a third was taken to hospital in a critical condition. A fourth man was treated at the scene for back and leg injuries before being taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

Four patients from other cars were treated by paramedics.

One of the men injured has now also died, bringing the death toll to three.

Driver in double fatal M5 crash fled the scene

The driver of one of the cars involved in a collision on the M5 that left two people dead fled before police officers arrived.

Officers investigating the fatal collision on the M5 are appealing for the driver of a MG Rover to come forward.

Despite extensive enquiries to trace him, he has not yet been identified or located. It is also not known whether there were any passengers in the vehicle.

We are now appealing for the driver themselves to come forward, or for members of the public to provide information to us to help identify and locate them.

Their account of the collision is vital to our investigation and we urgently need to speak to the occupant or occupants of this vehicle to fully understand what happened during this tragic incident.
