A WOMAN aged 19 has died in a crash in­volv­ing two ve­hi­cles.

Po­lice were called to the in­ci­dent in Sta­tion Road near Stoney Stanton on Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The woman, whose name has not been re­leased, was killed when her blue Fiat 500 was in­volved in a col­li­sion with a van in Sta­tion Road, be­tween Stoney Stanton and Elmesthorpe, shortly af­ter 12pm on Mon­day.

The woman was pro­nounced dead at the scene, Le­ices­ter­shire Po­lice said.

The driver of the Citroen Nemo panel van was taken to Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal in Coven­try with what po­lice de­scribed as non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries.

Sta­tion Road was closed while of­fi­cers car­ried out an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the scene. It has since re­opened.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Beth Pick, of the se­ri­ous col­li­sion in­ves­ti­ga­tion unit, said: “We would like to speak to any­one who was in the area and as­sisted at the scene.

“If you saw ei­ther of the ve­hi­cles be­ing driven be­fore­hand or the col­li­sion it­self or have any dash­cam that cap­tured the in­ci­dent we’d like to hear from you.”

“If you have any in­for­ma­tion that could help with our en­quiries and have not yet spo­ken to of­fi­cers we urge you to get in con­tact.” Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact Det Con Pick on 101.
