Arrest after man and woman killed in head-on crash in Cambridgeshire that left two children recovering in hospital
A man and woman have died after a head-on crash in Cambridgeshire - and two children who were in the car are recovering in hospital from their injuries.
The van driver, who also had minor injuries, failed a roadside drugs wipe and was arrested on suspicion of two counts of causing death by dangerous driving, and driving whilst unfit through drink or drugs.
Cambridgeshire police are appealing for any witnesses to the collision, which occurred on the A142 Isle of Ely Way, Chatteris, just after 8pm on Thursday (September 3).
Emergency services attended the scene but the driver and a rear seat passenger of the Ford Focus, who were both in their 30s, died at the scene.
The children in the car were in hospital this morning but have since been discharged.
The 32-year-old driver of the van, from Lincoln, remains in custody at Thorpe Wood Police Station.
Anyone who saw the collision or the vehicles in the lead up to it, or who has dashcam footage, is urged to contact police via their web webchat service or by calling 101, quoting incident number 478 of 3 September.
