Man arrested after Yaxley double hit-and-run death
A man has been arrested on suspicion of causing the deaths of two pedestrians killed in an apparent hit-and-run crash.
The two men died at about 11:10 GMT on Tuesday on Broadway in Yaxley, near Peterborough.
Officers searching for the driver of a BMW arrested a man in Chelmsford later that night on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and actual bodily harm.
The deceased have not yet been named.
They were believed to be in their late teens or early 20s and died at the scene of the crash.
The driver of a BMW fled on foot and a police helicopter and dog unit were brought in to help in the search.
Cambridgeshire Police said they detained a man from Essex on Tuesday night. He is expected to be transferred from Chelmsford to Cambridgeshire later.
