A man has died after a crash on the Cheshire / Shropshire border.
The incident happened at about 8.50pm on Thursday evening on the A49 at New House just near where the road passes the Shropshire Union Canal, Llangollen Branch.
A rapid response vehicle from Whitchurch was sent to the scene and arrived within seven minutes of the call.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Although the incident was just into Cheshire, West Midlands Ambulance Service responded to it as the nearest ambulance resource.
“On arrival, the paramedic found a car that had suffered significant damage. Unfortunately, there was nothing that could be done to help the driver and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
“The paramedic stood down ambulance resources coming from North West Ambulance Service.”
