Milton Keynes man dies following A421 collision

    A Milton Keynes man has died following a crash on the A421 on Friday (October 21).

    At approximately 7.40pm, there was a three-vehicle collision on the eastbound carriageway of the A421 near Marston Moretaine, involving a Vauxhall Corsa, a Peugeot, and a Skoda Superb, near the junction with Beancroft Road. 

    Two vehicles, a HGV and a Mazda, stopped to assist, but then approximately 10 minutes after the initial collision, a Mercedes collided with the stationery HGV. 

    The driver of the Mercedes, a man in his 40s from Milton Keynes, was pronounced dead at the scene.

    A spokesman for East of England Ambulance Service said: "We got a call at 7.47pm to reports of a road traffic collision on the A421 near Marston Moretaine.

    "We sent two rapid response vehicles, three ambulance crews, an ambulance officer and the air ambulance attended from the East of England Air Ambulance charity.

    "Three patients were treated at the scene. Two of them were treated for what are believed to be minor injuries and taken to Bedford Hospital South Wing via land ambulances.

    "Sadly, the third patient was pronounced dead at the scene, despite the best efforts of all involved.

    "The patient is believed to be a man in his 40s. Our thoughts are with his friends and family."

    Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the initial three-vehicle collision and the subsequent fatal crash to contact the forensic collision investigation unit on 101 quoting Operation Emley.
