An 11-year-old boy has tragically died after a car and truck collide in a horrific crash.
Rescue workers rushed to the scene of the accident, which happened around 7.30pm last night on the A303 near the Countess roundabout towards Stonehenge.
The young man from London was pronounced dead at the scene after the black BMW collided with the truck parked in a parking bay.
The driver of the car, a man in his 40s, and a passenger, a 15-year-old boy, suffered what are believed to be life-changing injuries and were rushed to Southampton General Hospital by ambulance.
