The collision happened around 1.05pm on Sunday 5 August on the B5062 in Newport towards Tibberton.

A car was travelling from Harper Adams University College towards Shrewsbury when for reasons yet to be established it mounted the grass verge causing the vehicle to roll into a nearby field.

The passenger of the vehicle – a 52 year old woman – was pronounced dead at the scene. A 56 year old man was taken to hospital and has since been discharged.

Officers are carrying out enquiries and appealing for witnesses. Police are also keen to speak to anyone who used the road on Sunday to get in contact.

Anyone with information is asked to contact West Mercia Police on 101 quoting reference 368s 050818.
