Arrest made over death of driver, 77, in Langley car crash

Police hear multiple reports or suspicious door-knocker asking for 'help'

Thames Valley Police has confirmed an elderly driver has died following a crash in Langley last night.

The force said a grey Volkswagen Golf collided with a blue Nissan Micra in Parlaunt Road at 10.34pm.

The collision caused the Nissan Micra to spin and go over the central verge, onto the other side of the carriageway where it hit a parked Toyota Prius.

The driver of the Micra, a 77-year-old man, suffered serious injuries and was taken to Wexham Park Hospital but was later pronounced dead.

Police said the driver of the Volkswagen Golf, a 22-year-old woman, was also hospitalised with serious injuries.

Officers have since arrested her on suspicion of causing death through dangerous driving while under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

She is currently in custody at Maidenhead Police Station.
