A WOMAN and a man in their thirties have died and two children were injured after a head-on car crash with a "drug driver" in a van.
The deadly collision between a Ford Focus and a van happened just after 8pm on Thursday on the A142 Isle of Ely Way in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire Police said.
Police said the driver of the van was arrested on suspicion of two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and driving while unfit through drink or drugs.
The 32-year-old man, from Lincoln, suffered minor injuries and remains in custody at Thorpe Wood Police Station in Peterborough.
The driver and a passenger in the back seat of the Ford car, both in their 30s, died at the scene.
Two children who were also in the car were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Police have urged for witnesses who saw the collision or the vehicles in the lead-up to it – or have dash cam footage of it – to come forward.
