Police appeal for witnesses following fatal collision that killed an elderly couple this morning


Police are appealing for witnesses after a single vehicle collision on the M3 this morning (20 July), after a car collided with the central reservation at around 12.45am.


Sadly, the driver, a 69-year-old man, and the passenger, a 67-year-old woman, were both declared dead the scene. Their next of kin are aware and are being supported by specialist officers.


The collision took place between junctions 2 and 3 (westbound towards Lightwater) and the carriageway will remain shut for at least a few more hours. The eastbound carriageway has now re-opened two lanes.


If you saw anything or have dashcam of the collision, please contact Surrey police on 101 quoting PR/45220077435.
