A40 fatal crash: Driver arrested over Monmouthshire collision

A driver has been arrested after a two-car collision in Monmouthshire in which another motorist died.

A Ford Ka and VW Golf, both silver, were heading on the A40 from Raglan towards Abergavenny at about 21:30 BST on Saturday, Gwent Police said.

The 78-year-old driver of the Ka died and his woman passenger is in a stable condition at Nevill Hall Hospital.

A 44-year-old man arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving is also in hospital with serious injuries.

The A40 was closed for about 10 hours while collision investigators attended the scene.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision to contact them by dialling 101, in particular the driver of a Ford Transit van or similar vehicle, thought to be heading in the same direction at that time.
