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'.

Experienced police officers told reporters it was one of the most shocking crashes they had seen.


It was also the second in the same spot within just 48 hours. Insp McLellan revealed that three people were seriously injured in a crash on Sunday – just a mile from the scene. He said a vehicle crossed the white lines of the main road and collided with a car towing a trailer.

A woman in her 30s driving a Vauxhall, along with a seven-year-old child and a nine-year-old all sustained serious injuries and are currently in hospital.


The driver of a Ford sustained minor injuries and was released from the hospital. Devon and Cornwall’s police said at the weekend they had been dealing with a ‘large number of serious and fatal crashes in the last 72 hours’.
