Elderly motorist dies in car accident after suspected heart-attack

An elderly motorist died in a car accident when he crashed head on into a telegraph pole.

The car accident, in Malborough, Wiltshire, possible occurred as the driver became ill and fell out of consciousness.

Police were forced to close the stretch of Pewsey Road between the A4 High Street and River Park to manage an investigation of the car accident, as well as get the damage cleared up.

An air ambulance was called from Devizes further west in the county, but was turned around on the confirmation that the driver had died in the car accident.

A Wiltshire Police representative said: “It looks as though the driver suffered a heart attack either before the collision or as a result of it.”
