Flowers have been left on the side of the A420 to pay tribute to the three young men who died in a fatal accident last weekend near Faringdon.

Four bunches of flowers have been placed on the grass near the A420 junction with Fernham Road.

Two 18-year-old men and a 20-year-old man were travelling in a Black Ford Fiesta on Sunday morning at 9.55am when it was involved in a crash with a coach and white Alfa Romeo.

They died at the scene.

Two other men who were also in the Fiesta, aged 19 and 21, sustained injuries and were taken to hospital, but have since been discharged.

Police witness appeal signs have been erected along the A-road urging drivers to ring 101 if they saw anything that day.

The drivers of the other vehicles were treated on the road which was closed for most of the day.

Oxford Mail:

Investigating officer, PC Naomi Haymes of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said: "Our thoughts remain with the families and friends of the three men who sadly died.

"We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed this collision, or who may have dash-cam footage of what happened to please come forward."

You can make a report online, or by calling 101, quoting reference 43220374478.
