Emergency services rushed to the A30 near Zelah, Cornwall, at around 6.25pm after a Citroen Picasso, a Skoda Octavia, a HGV and a Vauxhall Zafira collided. Police have today confirmed those travelling in the Citroen have died of their injuries.

All other people involved escaped with minor injuries, Cornwall Live reports.

Part of the road, which runs some 40 miles southwest from Zelah to Trevescan near Land’s End, will remain closed for most of the day.

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said: “At 1825 hours on Monday 28th March 2022 a four-vehicle road traffic collision occurred involving a Citroen Picasso, a Skoda Octavia, a Large Goods Vehicle and a Vauxhall Zafira. The collision occurred on the A30 between Carland Cross and Chiverton Cross in the area of Zelah in Cornwall.

“As a result of the collision, the occupants of the Citroen suffered fatal injuries and were pronounced deceased at the scene. All other parties involved in the collision sustained minor injuries.

“Local officers as well as officers from the Alliance Roads Policing Team attended the scene. Once a forensic investigation had been conducted the road was re-opened.

“Any persons who witnessed the collision or has information regarding it – in particular any dashcam footage, are asked to contact Devon and Cornwall Police on 101 quoting log number 0605 28th March 2022.”

Police continue to investigate the pile-up and traffic is being diverted in both directions as a result.

A National Highways spokesman said: “The road remains closed to allow collision investigation works to take place which Devon and Cornwall Police report are likely to continue into the morning peak travel period.

“National Highways have resources in attendance to assist with traffic management. Resources are also on scene in preparation for the conclusion of investigations to clear the carriageway of any remaining debris to ensure the safe reopening of the road.

“If this closure impacts on your planned route, please allow extra journey time. Plan ahead, you may wish to re-route or even delay your journey.”
