Wiltshire Police are appealing for witnesses after a man died following a road traffic collision near Salisbury yesterday afternoon (17th May 2022).

Police were called to a two-vehicle collision in Lucewood Lane, in Farley, near Alderbury, at around 2.55pm yesterday.

The collision involved a blue Skoda Karoq and a black Volkswagen Golf.

Sadly, the driver of the Skoda, a man in his 60s, died a short time later in hospital.

“His family have been informed and our thoughts are with them at this very difficult time,” said a Wiltshire Police spokesperson.

The other driver, a man in his 30s, was taken to Salisbury District Hospital as a precaution but was discharged a short time later.

Wiltshire Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit is investigating and asks any witnesses to contact them.
