Police appeal after woman in her nineties dies in collision

An appeal is being made for witnesses and dashcam footage to come forward as detectives investigate a fatal collision in Knossington.

Just after midday today (Wednesday 13 September) a report was received by Police that a grey Range Rover and silver Nissan Note had collided with one another at the junction of The Carriageway/Oakham Road and Cold Overton Road.

Emergency services attended but a passenger in the Nissan – a woman in her 90s – was pronounced dead a short time later. The other occupants of both vehicles did not suffer serious injuries.

A 63-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

Leicestershire Police has confirmed that he remains in custody at this time.

Detective Constable Charlotte Wright, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU), said: “While our investigation is in its early stages, I am keen to speak to any motorists or cyclists who were in the area this afternoon and can help.

“I’m particularly keen to speak to anyone with a dashcam in their vehicle, who saw the collision occur or saw either vehicle beforehand. Any details you’re able to provide, no matter how insignificant you think they are, could assist us.”

You can pass on information by visiting and quoting incident 320 of 13 September.

Alternatively call 101.
