A MAN from Warminster, who died following a road traffic collision on Monday morning, has been named.

Lawrence Pemberton, also known as Oz, 52, of The Dene, Warminster, died after the Vauxhall Omega he was driving was in collision with a Seat Leon and third vehicle, believed to be a lorry.

The collision occurred on the A36 just north of Chapmanslade, at Black Dog Hill, shortly before 7am.

Ambulance and fire crews attended, and the road was closed for a full investigation to take place.

It reopened shortly after midday.

His family released a statement saying: “Oz Pemberton tragically lost his life in a road traffic accident on his way to work. He was highly skilled in his job as a carpenter and could pretty much turn his hand to anything.

“Oz’s passions in life were his daughters Tayla, age 14, Lana, age 12, and his partner Lisa. Oz’s other passions were extreme kiting/kite surfing and his Harley Davidson.

“He was a very private person, unique in his ways.

“He will be sorely missed by his loving family who are understandably devastated.”

Since the fatal car crash on Monday, Fraser Mills, 72, who lives near that stretch of road at Black Dog Farm, and has done for the past 23 years, is requesting urgent action to prevent other fatal accidents.

The road near Black Dog Woods is a three-lane carriageway, with two lanes going uphill, with solid white line and dotted white line markings on the downhill lane.

He has written to Highways England urging them to update this dangerous stretch of road where visibility is a big issue.

“I drive up and down that road every day several times and it is infinitely obvious that the visibility is inadequate for safe overtaking.

“As a result there have been three fatal accidents since we moved here for which the dotted white lines are said to be a contributing factor.”

Mr Mills believes that putting double white lines on the downhill stretch of road would prevent overtaking from those travelling downhill, and that this will make the road a lot safer, so should be done sooner rather than later.

He said: “It would cost

pennies to put double white lines on the road. Quite frankly the cost is totally minimal.”

Wiltshire Police is still

appealing for witnesses; anyone with information about the collision should call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
