Police are appealing for witnesses after a fatal road crash on the A36 near Warminster last night.

A 50-year-old man from the Rode area was killed in a collision with another car just after 5pm and the road was closed for seven hours.

The Wiltshire Air Ambulance attended but the man suffered multiple injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident happened at Norridge Woods on the A36 between the Cley Hill and Granada Services roundabouts.

A white VW Golf driven by a 22-year-old from Melksham, who was driving towards the Granada Services, collided with the man's green coloured Rover 400.

The road, closed while emergency services carried out investigations into the crash. was re-opened this morning.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact PC David Williams from the serious collision investigation team on the police non-emergency number 101.

VW Golf? 22 year old male? Statistics seem to be loaded against the combination.

Both of the above comments reek of jumping to conclusions without any facts, not all 22yr old VW drivers are 'reckless' & 'stupid'. With it happening at 5pm lets assume it was an all too common rush hour traffic collision until proven otherwise.

Here we go again with you all making assumptions. It could have been a vehicle failure on either car or maybe the elder gentleman was taken ill. Maybe the Rover swerved to avoid another irresponsible driver or an animal. Or heaven forbid the Rover driving was driving with undue car and attention or speeding. If you don't know all the facts, it's better not to make any comment at all. If you do know the facts speak to the police!

Well said Betty77 and rusty bucket. How inconsiderate of these people to make assumptions and accusation that it was the 22year olds fault. The police definitely haven't said or implied this. How awful to be involved in such an awful incident and how awful for both families. Show some respect for all involved. Not every young driver is a bad reckless driver, there are bad drivers of all ages and no one knows the circumstances yet.

As a young driver myself, I find it completely unbelievable and incredibly ageist to suggest that the 22-year old driver was at fault! I'm not saying either he is or he isn't, all I can make from the article is that there has been an awful incident here. Neither of the people involved, or their families for that matter, need to see the blame being thrown around on "statistics" I've seen the older "more experienced" drivers causing much more of a risk on our roads. So pull your head out of your a*se and show some respect and pray for those who have lost!!!

How about we leave it up to the trained professionals to work out how this terrible accident came about, rather than blaming people when we have no facts. What ever has happened there is a dead person and devastated family and friends. RIP.

I did NOT suggest anyone was to blame. I said STATISTICS prove that proportionally young males are involved in more fatal accidents than other groups. FACT. That's why their insurance is much higher. Why do people leap to conclusions and say that is blaming someone? Read what's there, not what you think is or should be there.

With the benefit of statistics one can see that it is far safer to drive through Warminster town.
The bypass seems to be infested with impatient cretins of all ages in an imaginary hurry, who think that the passing of other cars is more important than the safety of other road users.

WHen will Wiltshire County Council wake up and realise that the A36 Bypass should have never have been a partial three lane road? Why did they not build it as a dual carriageway. I have never used that road as it is badly thought out and encouarges idiots to take risks and cause collisions (not accidents).

This was nothing to do with the road layout, since the bypass was opened all (I think) but one of the fatal collisions have been on the two lane sections and most were caused by ill advised overtaking

I am not going to comment about this particular case until all of the facts come out. But an analogy can be drawn with this section of the A36 (a road which is considered hazardous in many other places too) with the A303 Ilminster bypass which was also built originally as a 2-lane road but wide enough for later extension (as funds became available) to a dual carriageway. Several fatal RTCs took place there until the road markings were changed to clearly delineate the lanes and overtaking places. But a road can never be described as dangerous - how can it be when it is just an inanimate object? The RTCs are caused by drivers: some rise to the challenge presented by a hazardous road whilst others fail miserably.

Who is giving this ill advice?

There should be no overtaking at all. Even on the parts where an overtaking lane is provided, there are dimwits who think 'overtake or bust' and barely manage to get past before the lane runs out thereby narrowly avoiding their own or someone else's termination.

It's not nonsense at all. You fail to understand the difference between hazardous and dangerous. If there were no vehicles on that section of road at all then what danger would it present? It would, however, still be a hazard, just waiting for the minority of drivers who actually create the danger.

I know little Shakespeare and therefore am not aware of the context for the given quote so I hope he was not attributing his comments to all idiot taletellers. If he was then the bard is incorrect, tales told by idiots are just as likely to be quietly and peacefully presented.

Any respect I have for the unfortunate accident victim is a private matter and your instruction does not modify that. beetawix

Pack it in. The family won't be following this thread. You aren't the world moderator. Go away - read something/get involved in something else. That way you won't get upset that others don't adhere to your instructon.
Ever heard of free speech? It's applied at will. Not YOUR will - but at the will of anyone who wants to post.

If it were me the bit that would upset me would be your histrionic and incessant usage of the word 'died'.

Go and get a tattoo of Jill Dando you morbid grief chaser.

WHen will Wiltshire County Council wake up and realise that the A36 Bypass should have never have been a partial three lane road? Why did they not build it as a dual carriageway. I have never used that road as it is badly thought out and encouarges idiots to take risks and cause collisions (not accidents).
I am not going to comment about this particular case until all of the facts come out. But an analogy can be drawn with this section of the A36 (a road which is considered hazardous in many other places too) with the A303 Ilminster bypass which was also built originally as a 2-lane road but wide enough for later extension (as funds became available) to a dual carriageway. Several fatal RTCs took place there until the road markings were changed to clearly delineate the lanes and overtaking places. But a road can never be described as dangerous - how can it be when it is just an inanimate object? The RTCs are caused by drivers: some rise to the challenge presented by a hazardous road whilst others fail miserably.
Your analogies and implied wisdom are the work of a beautiful mind. The way you drop acronyms so casually is masterful.

I bet you are really good at maths and crosswords.
Thank you. And yes I am.

Incessant usage. !! Just the twice.
What ever way you look at this a man has lost his life. No matter what word is used. Is this not what the thread is all about??

Morbid Grief Chaser!!! You have no idea who I am or anything about me and I find your comment very offensive.

I know for a FACT that both men involved haven't lost their lives, the young driver has walked away with minor injuries!

I have never actually commented on any of these threads before and the only reason I did on this one is I knew for a fact that the accident was caused by the 22 year old being careless. My husband played a role in dealing with this as he was part of the Emergency Services who were called to this terrible incident. I am shocked and saddened at peoples comments on here and would definately refrain in participating again. I do realise that everyone has freedom of speech but the lack of respect has been appalling.

My sincere condolences go to you and your family TRustell.

What is the matter with people, a person has died his family devastated. Please let the experts do their job in sorting out how and why this happened, the truth always comes out. Luna, even if your husband helped here with his job it is not right for either of you to be saying what happened on this site for other people to hear, Cauldicott principles in these cases are important to us people who work in this sector and our patients. It is one thing for your husband to tell you about what he has had to deal with but for you to be saying who did what here is inappropiate. When the investigation is done the police will release what they want us to know.The only people who have a right to the ins and out of what happened here are the direct family and not us public. As you can gather from some of the comments, the reason why this information should not be placed on here for people to make hurtful comments when all that matters here at the moment is the poor loved ones left behind.

I would also defend anyone's right to 'free speech' but shouldn't it be tempered with with decency and respect?
I am also appalled at some of the flippant comments posted seemingly without a care or thought for who might read them.

Also, TRustell, my condolences to you and your family at this terrible time.

I doubt it very much. Had a few trolls claiming the same sort of things in the past. I believe the family would be involved in other things at this moment.

"so we are following your inconsiderate threads"
Really? I posted one comment - and I can't see what was inconsiderate about it.
I stand by it.

Shocked eh? I'm surprised that you should feel such a strong emotion. You have harped on about lack of respect and yet there is no post on this thread that is directly disrespectful to the person who lost his life. Not everyone feels they have to react to events such as this with the RIPs and thoughts and prayers etc. platitudes. It doesn't mean they have any less sympathy for those involved than those who feel the need to let everyone know how thoughtful and caring they are.
