A30 fatal crash victim identified
3:28pm Friday 27th December 2013 in News
The driver who died in a three-car collision on the A30 shortly before Christmas has been identified as a man from the Truro area.
Michael Gregson, aged 63, was involved in a crash that took place on the eastbound carriageway near Bolventor, in the Bodmin area, shortly before midday on Sunday, December 22.
A separate three cars also collided on the westbound carriageway at the same time, but no one was injured.
Mr Gregson was pronounced dead at the scene, while two occupants of another vehicle were airlifted to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.
It is thought that a sudden and severe hailstorm may have contributed to the multiple collisions.
Officers from the Serious Collisions Investigation Unit and Scenes of Crime have carried out an investigation.
No-one has been arrested in connection with this collision.
Speaking at the time Sergeant Olly Tayler, senior investigating officer, said: “Both carriageways were closed due to the serious nature of the collision and the horrendous weather conditions.
“We understand it has caused some disruption for motorists, particularly as it is a busy weekend prior to Christmas.
“The investigation into what caused the collision continues but one line of enquiry is that there was an unexpected exceptional weather event that happened at the time of the collisions in the form of a hail storm.
“Motorists are reminded to drive according to the conditions they are faced with on the roads.”
Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call police on 101 quoting log 384 of 22/12/13.
