Renewed appeal after fatal A303 collision

Wiltshire Police are making a renewed appeal for witnesses following a fatal RTC on the A303 near Stonehenge earlier this month.

On Saturday, July 8, at around 7.30 pm, a black BMW travelling westbound from the Countess Roundabout towards Stonehenge was involved in a collision with a lorry which was parked in a layby.

An 11-year-old boy was declared dead at the scene, while the driver of the car, a man in his 40s, and a 15-year-old boy were taken to hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the lorry was uninjured.

Investigating officer DC Charlotte Upton of the Serious Collision Investigation Team (SCIT) said: “This was a tragic incident where a young boy has sadly lost his life.

“We are making a renewed appeal for anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have dash cam footage from either side of the carriageway at around that time to please get in touch with us.

“If you were travelling through Wiltshire via the A303 that evening, or perhaps heading to Stonehenge, then please check any dash cam footage you have to see if it captured anything which could help us with our investigation.

“Any little bit of information could be vital in helping us piece together what happened.

“Anyone with information is urged to contact SCIT on 01225 694597 quoting log number 289 of July 8.

“Alternatively, they can contact the team directly at SCIT@wiltshire.police.uk.”
