A pensioner has died after a crash near Indian Queens.

It is after the car he was a passenger in rolled onto its roof on the A30 more than two weeks ago.

The 88 year old has been fighting for life in hospital since.

The 70 year old driver has been left with what police call "life changing" injuries.

The pair were from Bolton.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police and emergency services were called to the westbound carriageway around 5pm after a red Citroen Xsara Picasso rolled over several times and came to rest on its roof.
 
"The driver, a 70-year-old woman, and an 88-year-old male passenger, sustained serious injuries and were airlifted to Derriford Hospital by the police helicopter and air ambulance.
 
"The westbound carriageway was closed for six-and-a-half hours for officers from the Force Serious Collisions Investigation Unit to conduct a forensic examination of the scene.
 
"The A30 was also closed in both directions for a short time for the helicopters to land and safely evacuate the casualties.

"Police from the Serious Collisions Investigations Unit are appealing for witnesses to this incident to contact them on 101, quoting log number 0650 of 21/06/14."
