A PASSENGER in a car has died following a crash in a village near Lutterworth.

Police were called at 12.35pm on Friday (March 15) to a report of a collision between a blue Vauxhall Corsa and a white Vauxhall Vivaro van in Husbands Bosworth, on the A5199 Welford Road near the junction with Station Road.

A rear seat passenger in the Corsa, a man in his 20s, was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later.

The drivers of both vehicles and the front seat passenger of the Corsa – all men in their 20s – were also taken to hospital with serious injuries.

The front seat passenger was treated for possible life changing injuries.

Both drivers’ injuries were not believed to be life threatening or life changing.

A passenger in the Vivaro, a man in his 40s, also attended hospital with minor injuries.

DC 763 Paul Hicks, from Leicestershire Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, is appealing for witnesses.

He said: “At the time of the collision, the Corsa was travelling south east along Station Road towards Welford Road A5199 and the Vivaro was travelling north along Welford Road A5199 towards Husbands Bosworth.

“I would like appeal to anyone who may have seen the vehicles beforehand or the collision itself to get in touch.

“Alternatively, anyone who has any dash cam footage which may have captured something related, is also urged to make contact with us.”

Anyone with information can contact police via or by calling 101, quoting incident 301 of March 15.
