Man sees crash that killed his wife and stepchildren

Tragic: The
wreckage of the
crash on the
North Devon
link road

A HUSBAND watched in horror as his wife and two stepchildren were killed in a car crash while on holiday.

He was travelling in a separate car from his family and witnessed the smash in his ‘rear view mirror’, according to reports.

His wife was travelling with her children when her car was in collision with a Marks and Spencer delivery lorry near Barnstaple, Devon, at 8.25am yesterday, said police. The woman and one child died at the scene. Her other child, a girl, died later at North Devon district hospital.

The victims, who have not been named, were holidaying in Devon from elsewhere in the UK.

The A361 North Devon link road, where the crash happened, was closed all day yesterday while police conducted an investigation.

An M&S spokesman said: ‘Our sympathies go out to the family and friends of the individuals involved.’
