A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Shortly before 8.15pm on Saturday 13 December a black Skoda Superb left the carriageway and collided with a hedge at the end of Gwavas Lane in the Paul area of the town.
"Paramedics treated the driver, a 76-year-old man from Looe, at the scene. He was then taken to Treliske Hospital, Truro, where he sadly died.
