A man has died in an accident near Penzance.

It is thought the 76 year old from Looe could have had a medical episode before the car crash near Paul.

Paramedics battled to save his life but he died at Treliske.

A 64 year old woman was treated for minor injuries.

Anyone who saw anything on Saturday evening is asked to call police.

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.

"Officers are investigating if the driver of the car suffered a medical episode before the collision. No other vehicles were involved in the collision.

"The 64-year-old female passenger, who suffered minor injuries, was also taken to hospital.

"The road was closed for just over seven hours to enable a forensic investigation of the scene to take place and the road surface to be cleaned by Highways.

"Anyone who witnessed the collision, or the car shortly beforehand, is asked to call the Bodmin Serious Collisions Investigation Unit on 101 quoting log 777 of 13 December."
