"The driver – a 25-year-old man from Havant – was sadly pronounced dead at scene.

"The sole passenger – a 19-year-old man from Havant – suffered life-threatening injuries and has been taken to hospital for treatment.

"A 20-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man, both from Havant, have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, and remain in police custody at this stage.

"The road was closed in both directions while investigations were carried out, and has since reopened. We’d like to thank the public for their patience and understanding.

"Police are appealing for witnesses and are particularly interested to hear from anyone with dash cam footage of the collision, or the Golf or a red Audi A3 being driven in the area prior to the collision."
