Mum And 12-Year-Old Twins Killed In Horror Holiday Crash In Devon Witnessed By Husband

The father Chris Gaskin of twin 12-year-olds who died in a horror crash with their mother Jane Baker-Lockett today revealed his 'enormous loss' and called their death an 'absolute tragedy'.

Police said the Kia Sportage and the lorry had been traveling in opposite directions when they were involved in the “two-vehicle collision”.


Inspector Richard McLellan, of Devon and Cornwall Police, said the stepfather was in a different car on the same road, the BBC reports.

He said: “It would seem that a car traveling towards Barnstaple, for unknown reasons at the moment, has crossed the centre white line and hit an oncoming truck.


“Unfortunately the family were traveling in two separate cars but traveling together along this road, so dad was there at the scene as well.”
