A young woman who sustained serious injuries in a crash on the A36 near Wylye on Wednesday last week died in hospital on Saturday.

The woman, in her 20s, has yet to be formally identified by police, but they confirmed that she died at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol, where she was airlifted after last week’s collision.

She was trapped unconscious in an Audi A3 after it collided with a Citroën Berlingo at around 8.45am, and suffered serious head and pelvic injuries and possibly further internal injuries.

She is expected to be identified later today (Monday).

The male driver of the car, also believed to be in his 20s, suffered minor injuries and was taken to Salisbury District Hospital.

The male driver of the second vehicle was assessed and treated for minor injuries at the scene and did not require hospital treatment.

Police are appealing for witnesses to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team at Devizes on 101 ext 7203111.
