A man has died following a collision involving a people carrier and a lorry near Rugby.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A46 Eastern bypass at the Rugby Road junction near Tollbar Island shortly after 2.35pm yesterday (Monday).

Two ambulance crews attended along with a paramedic officer and two critical care paramedics from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance who were in a response vehicle.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The people carrier had suffered very significant damage at the front after colliding with a lorry in a layby.

“Sadly, it became apparent that nothing could be done to save the middle aged driver who was the only occupant of the people carrier and he was confirmed dead at the scene. He was the only patient.”
