Slough woman killed in Chalfont St Peter Amersham Road crash

A 23-year-old has died after a car lost control and overturned in a late night horror smash.

The young Slough woman was one of five people in a blue Volkswagen Golf which mounted a roundabout and rolled onto its roof at about 2.30am in Chalfont St Peter.

Detectives closed the A413 between A40 Oxford Road and The Greyhound Inn (Joiners Lane Roundabout) for more than 10 hours as they investigated the deadly smash.

It was reopened at midday.
