Fatal crash shuts A338 near Ringwood for more than six hours

A man has died at the scene of a three-vehicle crash which closed a main road for more than six hours.

Two air ambulances were called to the A338 at Blashford near Ringwood at about 15:20 BST on Wednesday.

Hampshire Constabulary said a 75-year-old man from Bournemouth died at the scene.

He was travelling southbound in a silver Citroen Xsara, when it was in collision with a northbound Nissan Navara.

The 30-year-old driver of the Nissan was treated for whiplash, while the driver of a blue Volvo XC60 also caught up in the collision, was uninjured.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash to come forward.
