Associated Image

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 59-year-old man died in a fatal road collision on the A30 at Honiton on Christmas Eve.

At 11.35am officers and emergency services were called to a two-vehicle collision between a car and an HGV at Rawridge Hill.

A silver Ford Focus travelling towards Honition had been in collision with a lorry which was heading towards Somerset.

The driver of the Focus, who was from London but was living with family in the local area, sustained serious injuries and died at the scene.

The driver of the lorry, a 50-year-old man from Launceston, suffered minor injuries.

The road was closed for 10 hours for police to investigate the scene and to enable the removal of the HGV which had left the road and ended up in a steeply-sloped wooded area.

Officers from the Exeter Serious Collisions Investigation Unit have launched an investigation into the collision and are appealing for witnesses to contact them.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police by telephoning 101, quoting log number 247 of 24/12/12.
