Man, 34, dies in police pursui

A 34-year-old man died when the car he was driving crashed minutes after he failed to stop at the scene of an earlier accident on Saturday night.
His Honda was spotted by police near Castle Street, Taunton, but failed to stop. Police said it was then subject to an "operational follow".

Shortly afterwards it collided with a Ford, whose 32-year-old driver remains in a critical but stable condition.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission has been informed.

Earlier at 2150 GMT, the white Honda CRX collided with a green Nissan Micra outside the Crown and Sceptre pub in Priory Bridge Rd, Taunton, at its junction with Station Road.

The two female occupants of the Nissan were slightly injured.

'Failed to stop'

The Honda was then spotted by officers shortly after 2200 GMT.

The car travelled along Castle Street but police say it failed to stop when requested.

It was then said to have travelled along Wellington Road towards Park Street before leaving Taunton on the A38 towards Wellington.

Minutes later it collided head-on with a Ford Escort being driven by a local man at Stone Gallows on the A38.

The driver of the Honda, from Taunton, was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other occupants in the Honda.

The Ford driver sustained serious injuries and was taken to Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton.

The busy A38 was closed for nearly eight hours to allow collision investigation officers to examine the scene.

Police are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed either collision or spotted the Honda while it was travelling from Station Road towards the A38.

Avon and Somerset Police have referred the collision to the Independent Police Complaints Commission because of the involvement of the police car.
