Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

AN EL­DERLY woman died at the scene of a car ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing four cars on Box­ing Day.

The crash took place on Amer­sham Road in Lit­tle Chal­font and the emer­gency ser­vices were called at roughly 12.15pm, with all three branches at­tend­ing.

The 81 year-old woman, who was a pas­sen­ger in one of the cars, was pro­nounced dead at the scene, whilst a man and a woman were taken to hos­pi­tal with non-life threat­en­ing in­juries after be­ing freed from the wreck­age by the fire ser­vice. The in­ci­dent is be- lieved to have taken place near the junc­tion with Stony Lane, in the North-East­ern tip of the vil­lage.

Amer­sham Road was closed while the emer­gency ser­vices car­ried out an in­ves­ti­ga­tion, but was re­opened later that day. Po­lice have made no ar­rests.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer PC Jor­dan John­stone of the Joint Op­er­a­tions Unit for Roads Polic­ing, said: “This in­ci­dent has very sadly re­sulted in the death of a woman, and our thoughts are with her fam­ily and friends at this time.

“I am ap­peal­ing for any­one who may have wit­nessed this in­ci­dent, or who has any in­for­ma­tion which could re­late to it, to come for­ward and con­tact Thames Val­ley Po­lice by calling the non-emer­gency num­ber 101.”
