"Emergency services were called to the Boxheater junction on the A30 at 9.25am on Saturday 13 December after the collision between a Rover 200 car and a Toyota Hiace van.

"The male driver of the van was uninjured.

"Officers from the Serious Collisions Investigation Unit carried out an examination of the scene and a 500-metre section of the A30 was closed for six-and-a-half-hours.
