Wiltshire Police are still appealing for witnesses following a fatal crash on the A303 at the weekend.

The incident took place at around 12.54pm on Sunday, July 27 at the A303 Mere Bypass on the eastbound carriageway.

The crash involved a broken down Mazda MX5 which was stationary in the inside lane and a lorry.

The Mazda was struck from behind by the lorry which was travelling east.

The driver of the Mazda died at the scene as a result of her injuries and has now been formally identified as Mariola Martin, 53, from Swindon.

Mariola was born in Poland but had lived in Swindon for 35 years. She worked at Dyson.

The lorry driver, a 51 year old man from Devon, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

The A303 eastbound was closed for more than 8 hours while the scene was examined and the vehicles recovered.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to contact Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
