A WOMAN has died following a two-car collision on the A5 near Lutterworth.

A grey Mini Countryman and a blue Peugeot 308 collided on the northbound side of the carriageway between the A426 and A4303 roundabouts, at around 10.20am yesterday (October 17).

The driver of the Peugeot, a woman in her 50s, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries but died a short time later.

The driver of the Mini, also a woman in her 50s, is being treated for injuries not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing.

An investigation is now underway and officers are looking to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or may have dash cam footage.

“Anyone with a dash cam is also asked to make contact so we can check if you have captured anything which may help with our investigation.”
