Man dies in serious Langley Mill car crash on 'terrible and tragic night'
Cromford Road in Langley Mill was shut in the early hours of yesterday morning (Sunday, April 3), as officers were called to reports of a serious collision between the A610 and Plumptre Road.
A spokesman for Derbyshire Police has since confirmed that a man had died in the crash.
The man was one of the drivers involved in the crash, police have said.
The spokesman for Derbyshire Constabulary added: "Unfortunately it is proven to be a fatal road traffic collision and inquiries are ongoing."
The Langley Mill crash was one of a trio of very serious road traffic collisions dealt with on the same busy night shift for Derbyshire police, which they described as a “terrible and tragic night”.
As well as the Langley Mill fatality, a young woman was badly injured when a Skoda Fabia hit a tree in Harewood Road, in Holymoorside, Chesterfield.
Late on the evening of Saturday, April 2, police were also called out to Clay Cross where there had been a bad accident on the A61.
