A man has been killed in a road collision on the A5 at Flamstead on Friday.

The incident occurred just before 9pm at the junction with Old Watling Street and involved a Volkswagen Touran, which was travelling west on the A5, and a DAF recovery truck, which had been travelling east.

There were four people in the Touran, and one of the men seated in the back of the car, a 34 year old from Watford, died at the scene.

A 32 year old man who was also a rear passenger, and the front seat passenger, a 46-year-old Watford man, were both taken to Luton and Dunstable Hospital.

The driver of the recovery truck, a 64 year old man from Markyate, was not injured.

A 28 year old man from Watford was arrested and questioned on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has been released on police bail until May 20 while investigations continue.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to contact PC Bob Hauxwell via the Herts Police non-emergency number 101.
