Newport Pagnell crash: man dies

Convertible turned upside down

A man died in a road accident near the Tickford roundabout in Newport Pagnell yesterday (Sunday) afternoon.

The man was in a BMW convertible with one male passenger when it turned upside down during the crash.

An air ambulance took the seriously injured passenger to hospital while the driver of the BMW died at the scene.

A second car, a Peugeot 206, was also involved. Both people from that car were taken to hospital but did not receive any injuries.

A Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesman said emergency workers put up a screen to keep the scene private from onlookers.

"It was a very serious incident," he said. "Crews from Newport Pagnell and Broughton worked extremely well in very difficult circumstances.

"Police have started a full investigation into the crash and until that is completed we are unable to say how it happened."

Police want to hear from anyone who was in the area when the crash happened - at about 3pm. They can be contacted on 0845 8 505 505.
