Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision between two vehicles on the A413 between Great Missenden and Wendover this morning in which two people died.

Just before 6am, between Bowood Lane and Leather Lane, a black Vauxhall Astra travelling from Amersham to Wendover collided with a grey Peugeot 308 travelling in the opposite direction.

South Central Ambulance Service and firefighters from Great Missenden and Aylesbury also attended, and paramedics treated the two male drivers and a female passenger from the Vauxhall. However, both men were declared dead at the scene. The woman, believed to be in her 20s, was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital suffering from serious injuries.

The driver of the Vauxhall is believed to be aged in his 20s and from High Wycombe. The driver of Peugeot is believed to be in his 60s from Aylesbury. Next of kin of both men have been informed.

The road was closed until 10.30am.

Anyone who was in the area at the time, or who may have seen either the Vauxhall with two occupants or the Peugeot with only the driver just before the collision at 5.55am, is asked to call 101 and speak to PC Sarah Phillips from Thames Valley Police.
