Four men dead after car crashes into house and catches fire

Four men have died after a car crashed into a house on the A4 near Calne, in Wiltshire, during the early hours of Sunday.

The vehicle hit the side of the house before catching on fire around 3am this morning, a spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said.

Those inside the house quickly called 999 and were evacuated while the fire was extinguished. All four occupants of the car died at the scene, while no one inside the house was injured.

The A4 and the A342 remain closed due to the ongoing investigation and recovery work taking place.

Supt Steve Cox said: ‘This was an absolutely horrific collision on our roads in the early hours of this morning.

‘All blue light services attended the scene and were met with devastating scenes after a vehicle appears to have been travelling along the A4 when it has collided with a house and caught on fire. 

‘All four occupants of the vehicle died at the scene. Their families have been informed and we are in the process of assigning each family with specialist trained officers.

‘Our thoughts, and the thoughts of all at Wiltshire Police are with them all today.’
