The collision involved a black BMW 5 Series, a white Audi A5 and a red Renault Clio. The driver of the BMW, a man in his 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The drivers of the two other cars, both women, suffered injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing.

Detective Sergeant Jon Putnam, from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our investigation is in its early stages and I would ask anyone who witnessed the collision but who has not spoken to police to do so.

“I’d like anyone who was on the A606 this morning particularly those with a dashcam in their vehicle to come forward. Did you see the collision occur? Did you see any of the vehicles involved beforehand?

Any details you’re able to provide could help.”

You can pass on information by visiting and quoting incident 174 of 21 November.

Alternatively call 101.

Police have confirmed that no arrests have been made at this time.
