Woman dies in coach crash
Friday 02 September 2011
An elderly woman has died after the car she was a passenger in was in a crash with two coaches on a dual carriageway, police said.
The accident happened on the southbound carriageway of the A34 near Litchfield, Whitchurch, Hampshire.
The woman, 81, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, who was the front seat passenger in the silver Vauxhall Meriva, was taken to Southampton General Hospital by ambulance where she was later pronounced dead.
The elderly male driver suffered less serious injuries and was taken to the same hospital.
Two other people were treated for injuries at the scene but did not need to be taken to hospital.
A Hampshire Police spokesman appealed for information and added that the coaches and the car were recovered by police while the coach passengers were able to continue their journeys in alternative transport.
The southbound carriageway was re-opened shortly after 5pm, he said.
