A man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after two men died when a car being followed by an unmarked police vehicle collided with a tipper truck.
The crash, involving a Peugeot 206 and a Ford Transit van, occurred last Wednesday in Upperton Road, Leicester.
Two passengers in the car died at the scene and the driver has now been discharged from hospital.
