Kidderminster death crash man, 78, named
2:41pm Friday 11th January 2013 in News
THE 78-year-old man who died in after his car hit a tree in Kidderminster has been named as Maurice Luscott-Evans.
Mr Luscott-Evans, from the Kidderminster area, was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision, which happened at about 12.40am yesterday at the junction of the B4189 and A451 near the Park Gate pub.
His red Vauxhall Aqila left the road and collided with a tree.
The Worcestershire coroner has been informed and a post-mortem examination is due to take place on Monday.
PC Dave Langridge, of West Mercia Police, said: “We now know Mr Luscott-Evans travelled along the A442 Bridgnorth Road into Kidderminster and is then likely to have been driven down the B4189 Wolverley Road towards the Park Gate.
“At that time of night there would not have been many vehicles on the road, so we would like to hear from anyone who remembers seeing a small red car prior to the collision.”
Anyone with information should contact PC Langridge or Sgt Matt Eddy at the force operations support team at Rubery Police Station on 101, quoting incident 13-S-100113.
