80-year-old killed in crash in Queniborough

An 80-year-old man has died in a crash in Queniborough and Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

The accident happened shortly before 3.30pm on Wednesday 4 September, when a car came off the A607 near the Queniborough roundabout.

The car – a black Volkswagen Golf – left the carriageway before travelling down an embankment and colliding with trees.

The driver of the car, an 80-year-old man, was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham with life-threatening injuries but later died. He was the only occupant.

Detective Constable Louise McMahon, the investigating officer, said: “This collision happened shortly before 3.30pm – when many people may have been picking their children up from school or nursery.”

“I’d like to speak to anyone who was travelling on the A607 and saw the collision occur, or who saw the black Golf before it happened.”

“If you have a dashcam installed in your vehicle, then I would ask that you make contact. Any information you have could help with my investigation.”
