One man has died and another two are in a serious condition after the car they were travelling in collided with a tree.

DETEIVES investigating the fatal collision in Evington, Leicester, last night (Sunday, January 17) are appealing for witnesses – or anyone with dashcam footage – to come forward.

The crash happened in Coleman Road shortly after 11.30pm when for reasons as yet unknown, a dark-coloured Seat smashed into a tree.

A man in his 20s was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two other men were taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham. A man in his 30s is being treated for life-threatening injuries, while a man in his 20s is in a serious but stable condition.

The road remains closed while officers carry out further enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hawkins, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU), said: “I’d like to speak to anyone who saw a dark-coloured Seat Leon travelling around Evington late last night.

“I’d ask anyone who saw it prior to the collision – or who saw the collision occur – to come forward. I am also keen to speak to any motorists with a dashcam installed in their vehicle or, given it happened in a residential area, anyone with CCTV at their address.

“Any information, no matter how insignificant you think it is, could help our investigation.”
