Two elderly people have died and three others, including two children, are hospitalised following a three-car horror crash.
The collision occurred on the A415 in Pembrokeshire, south of Narbeth, shortly before 5.30pm yesterday.
Dyfed-Powys Police confirmed that an elderly man and an elderly woman, who were both travelling in the same car, died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
One adult and two children were also in hospital with serious injuries. Their current conditions remain unknown.
A section of the road between the Canaston Bowl area and Templeton was shut for more than eight hours as a result of the crash. It has since been reopened.
Police are now asking witnesses who may have seen the collision to come forward, or for anyone who may have dashcam footage of the incident to make contact.

A large emergency services response was called to the scene early Tuesday evening after receiving reports of a multi-vehicle collision.
Five emergency ambulances, two rapid response vehicles from the Welsh Ambulance Service, a crew from Cardiff’s Wales Air Ambulance base and Dyfed-Powys Police officers attended the scene.
‘Three cars were involved – a silver Hyundai i10, a white Peugeot 3008 and a silver Mini,’ a Dyfed-Powys Police spokesman said.
‘Sadly, an elderly man and an elderly woman, both travelling in the same car, died as a result of their injuries. Their next of kin has been informed.
‘One adult and two children have been taken to hospital with serious injuries.’
The three injured individuals were taken to Glangwili Hospital for further treatment, a spokeswoman for the Welsh Ambulance Service confirmed.
The A415 was closed down for several hours so investigations could be carried out. The road re-opened at around 1.45am.
Police are now appealing witnesses or anyone who captured footage of the crash to come forward. They are asked to contact PS Paul Owen-Williams at Dyfed-Powys Police, either online, by emailing [email protected], or by calling 101.
