Last year two people died on the same stretch of the A338
A woman has died in a head-on crash between a car and a lorry on the A338 in Hampshire.
The accident happened near the village of Ibsley, north of Ringwood, at about 0740 GMT. The Renault Clio caught fire after the crash and the driver died.
Police said the driver was a young woman from Poole, Dorset. The driver of the DAF articulated lorry was unhurt.
It is the third fatal crash on the A338 between Ringwood and Fordingbridge in the past year.
The road was shut in both directions for several hours and diversions were in place. It reopened at about 1300 GMT.
The lorry driver, a 56-year-old man from Frome, Somerset, has given a statement to police but has not been arrested.
Officers want to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or who saw either vehicle prior to the crash.
On 27 September last year, 25-year-old Andrew Callis died when his car collided head-on with a double decker bus on the A338 between Ringwood and Fordingbridge in fog.
Three months previously, three times 4x4 off-road British Rally Champion Paul Choat, 43, died when his Mercedes convertible collided with a telegraph pole and a tree on the same road at Blashford.
And in September 2006, 20-year-old Jennifer Tilley was killed and another woman was seriously injured when their car spun out of control and hit oncoming traffic between Fordingbridge and Ibsley.
Later that month new solar-powered cats' eyes were installed on the road as a trial.
The lights enabled drivers to see ten times further on the road ahead than traditional cats' eyes allow.
