Three people have died and two people seriously injured following a collision on the A38 in the early hours of Saturday morning (23 April).
Emergency services were called to the incident, which involved one car, at around 2.15am.
The car, a silver Ford Focus, was on the southbound carriageway of the A38, near to the exit for the B600 at Somercotes, when it left the road and collided with a tree.
Two women and a man died at the scene. Their families are aware and are being supported by specially trained officers. Our thoughts are with them at this most distressing of times.
A man and a woman were taken to hospital with serious injuries. They both remain in hospital, the man in a critical condition and the woman in a stable condition.
Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the crash or noticed the car, which had been travelling southbound on the M1 before the collision.
We would particularly appeal for anyone with dashcam or CCTV footage which could help with our enquiries to get in touch.
