A driver has died after six vehicles were involved in a series of crashes during a hail storm near Bolventor.

Three vehicles collided on the eastbound carriageway just after midday. One of the drivers was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
Two occupants of another vehicle travelling eastbound were taken to Derriford Hospital by air ambulance. The extent of their injuries is not yet known.
 
Another three vehicles collided on the westbound carriageway, but everyone escaped unhurt.
 
The eastbound carriageway was closed for some hours while teams from the Serious Collisions Investigation Unit and Scenes of Crime carried out an investigation.
 
No-one has been arrested.
 
Sergeant Olly Tayler, Senior Investigating Officer, said: “Both carriageways were closed due to the serious nature of the collision and the horrendous weather conditions.
 
“We understand it has caused some disruption for motorists, particularly as it is a busy weekend prior to Christmas.
 
“Please be reassured officers and the other emergency services have been working as quickly as possible in these very difficult circumstances.

“The investigation into what caused the collision continues but one line of enquiry is that there was an unexpected exceptional weather event that happened at the time of the collisions in the form of a hail storm.
 
“Motorists are reminded to drive according to the conditions they are faced with on the roads, particularly with the weather forecast over the next few days.”
 
Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call police on 101 quoting log 384 of 22/12/13.
