Police have stepped up an investigation into a crash on the A413 which claimed two lives.

Malcolm Tindall, 64, of Aylesbury and Carl Bird, 29, of High Wycombe were killed when the vehicles they were travelling in crashed at 6am on March 4.

A woman travelling with Mr Bird also received injuries in the early morning accident.

Sergeant Scott Long, from Thames Valley Police’s roads policing unit, now wants to hear from anyone who travelled on the road that morning before the crash took place.

He said: “The investigation is continuing in to the circumstances of the fatal collision on the A413 on 4 March, which took place shortly before 6am.

“I am re-appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision to call police to tell us what they saw.

“I am also appealing to anyone who travelled on the A413 in either direction between 4.30am and 6am, even if they did not see the collision itself, to contact police via our 24-hour non-emergency number 101 and ask to speak to the investigating officer PC Sarah Phillips from roads policing.

“They may have vital information which could assist the investigation.

“Our specially-trained officers are continuing to support the families of those who have tragically died and been injured as a result of the collision.”

Last week we reported how Martin Kendall, whose car came off the road after skidding on ice earlier that morning, asked why attending police did not make sure the road was safe following his accident.

Mr Kendall, who was taken to hospital with bruising to his ribs and back, claims that his car skidded on a 20ft sheet of ice in the road.

This week this newspaper has been contacted by members of the public saying that water in the road, which had been there since January, has now been dealt 

When the Bucks Herald contacted Thames Water and Transport for Bucks they said neither of them had done any repairs in the area.

An inquest has been opened into the accident and will be heard by Buckinghamshire’s coroner on June 18.

If you have any information about the collision call police on 101 quoting URN 123 4/3.
