THREE people were seriously injured in a five-vehicle crash on the A5 Watling Road, near the village of Watford.

At around 2.20pm on Friday (September 29), a grey Alfa Romeo Guilia travelling northbound towards Rugby collided with a black Audi travelling in the opposite direction towards Weedon.

Following the impact, the Alfa Romeo collided with an oncoming blue Ford Mondeo, and the Audi collided with a grey Skoda Superb which was travelling in the opposite direction. This caused the Skoda to collide with a white Nissan Interstar van.
