Two people have died following a crash in Grouville.
All emergency services were called to Rue de Fauvic at around 9.30pm on Saturday (5 August) to reports of two people being involved in a ‘serious road traffic collision’.

It happened prior to the junction of Rue au Long and La Route des Cotils.
Police found debris from a white vehicle on the road.
The two people were taken to hospital, where police say great efforts were made to save them, but both sadly died from their injuries later that night.
Following an extensive search, a white van with substantial damage to its front end was found in St Helier.
A 28 year old man was arrested on Sunday morning on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of an RTC.
