11 August 2011, 13:54
Police investigating the fatal road traffic collision on the A41, Tylers Way in Watford on Saturday, July 16, have arrested three people in connection with the incident and are continuing to appeal for people with information to come forward.
Forty-year-old Jason Crane, from Croxley Green, passed away at the scene of the collision which took place at approximately 1.20pm when a silver Audi and a white van collided. Three young men - thought to be travelling in the Audi - left the scene on foot before emergency services arrived.
A 19-year-old man from Dunstable was arrested in connection with this incident on July 16. He has been released on bail and is due to return to Hatfield police station in August. An 18-year-old man from Harrow and a 16-year-old boy from Watford have also been arrested in connection with the collision. Both have been bailed and are due to return to Hatfield police station on November and September respectively.
Senior Investigating Officer Inspector Andy Piper, said: “Despite having arrested three people in connection with this incident, we are still looking for people who may have been involved in the collision.
“I am therefore urging anyone who may not have yet spoken to police and thinks they may have seen three young men, all wearing jeans, leaving the Audi and walking away from the scene of the incident, to contact police.
They are believed to have walked north along the A41 towards the roundabout with Eltsree Road. Did you see them walking along the road or maybe being picked up by another vehicle? I’d also be interested to hear from anyone who feels they may know the people who made off from the scene of the collision.”
