AN ELDERLY couple from Fareham have died in a car crash.

The couple were travelling south on the A34 yesterday when their red Ford Fusion car came off the road and landed on its roof near Three Maids Hill, just north of Winchester.

Hampshire Police have confirmed that the couple were from the Fareham area, but they have not yet been formally identified. The next of kin have been informed.

The 69-year-old woman died at the scene of the accident. Her 70-year-old husband was taken to Southampton General Hospital but died there later.

The road was closed for almost six hours after the crash, which happened at about 6.30pm.

Police are continuing to investigate how the car left the road. It’s understood that no other vehicles were involved.
