Thames Valley Police says it will conduct an investigation in to circumstances surrounding to a collision on the A413 near Great Missenden on 4 March.

Thames Valley Police made a referral to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) last week.

The investigation concerns police actions following a single vehicle collision which took place shortly before 5am on the A413 near Great Missenden.

But around an hour later on the same stretch, another collision occurred just before 6am where a black Vauxhall Astra travelling from Amersham to Wendover was in collision with a grey Peugeot 308 travelling in the opposite direction.

Paramedics treated the two male drivers and a female passenger from the Vauxhall. The woman sustained serious injuries and was taken to hospital. Both men died at the scene.

An investigation in to the cause of that crash is still underway.

In a statement to Mix96, Thames Valley Police say due to the ongoing investigations, the Force says it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.
