A driver has died after a collision on the A48 between Lydney and Blakeney today.
A black Seat Leon driven by a 30-year-old man from Churchdown was travelling along the A48 towards Gloucester when it left the road and collided with trees at around 10.45am.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The coroner and the driver’s next of kin have been informed.
The road was closed in both directions for several hours while police dealt with the crash.
The incident is the third death on the road in as many weeks.
Tania Manka and Shayne Witts, both from Lydney, were killed at Lensbrook in a crash on December 27, prompting calls form civic leaders to improve safety along the A48.
Signs along the roadside show there have been 52 casualties there in the past three years.
Councillors from Lydney met with Highways officials on December 31 to raise their concerns.
Villagers from Woolaston have also backed the move, demanding something changes following four deaths along a stretch of the A48 just a few hundred metres long since 2003.
Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact Gloucestershire Police on 101, quoting incident number 128 of January 18.
