A spokesman from Derbyshire Police told our sister title the Derby Telegraph that: "Just before 9pm on January 9, a collision occurred on the A50 eastbound between Toyota and Chellaston.

"A blue rover and a dark-coloured Ford Edge collided next to the parking lay by.

"The driver of the blue Rover was pronounced dead at the scene and the driver of the Ford Edge was taken to Derby Royal Hospital with minor injuries as a precaution.
