A MAN died yesterday (Monday) after the car he was driving crashed and became submerged in water.

The incident happened about 6.45am in the stream near to Kidderminster Road.

It is believed the blue Peugeot 206 which was being driven by the 24-year-old man left the road, collided with the bridge and ended up in the stretch of water below the carriageway.

Fire crews from Bromsgrove and Kidderminster, a water rescue vehicle from Droitwich and an ambulance and two senior paramedic officers were sent to the scene and a rescue sled was used to get to the car.

But unfortunately, once the man was freed from the car it became apparent to medics that nothing could be done to save him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The police were also at the scene and are currently investigating the incident.

A West Mercia Police spokesperson said: “Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have been in the area at the time or anyone who may have seen the Peugeot, which was travelling in the direction away from Kidderminster, shortly before the incident.”

Any witnesses or anyone with any information should call police on 101.
