Two drivers travelling on A449 shortly before two-car fatal crash sought by police

Rob George 21st Mar, 2022

OFFICERS investigating a fatal collision on the A449 in Ombersley earlier this month want to speak to two drivers who were travelling down the road shortly before the incident.

The collision happened on Wednesday, March 2 at around 9.30pm when two cars collided near to the Ombersley junction of the A449 on the Worcester-bound carriageway. The drivers of both vehicles died at the scene.

While the investigation is ongoing, officers believe that one of the cars, a white Ford Mondeo, was travelling in the wrong direction along the A449 before colliding with an oncoming car, a black Vauxhall Astra.

PC Paul Bosley said: “After reviewing CCTV footage from around the time of the collision we believe there are at least two other cars that were travelling towards Worcester and passed the white Ford Mondeo being driven in the wrong direction. It appears one of the drivers may have sounded their horn.

“We are very keen to hear from the drivers or passengers of these two vehicles, as we believe they will have vital information to help with our investigation.

“We are also keen to hear off anyone who may have been travelling on the opposite carriageway towards Kidderminster, or anyone may have any dash cam footage of the white Ford Mondeo being driven along the A449 prior to the collision.”

“Our thoughts continue to remain with both families of the victims at this difficult time.”
