Car crash death in Radford

By Harpreet Dawett

A man has died in a car crash in Coventry on Sunday 16 February. The crash happened on Beake Avenue in Radford where the car went off road and crashed into a number of residents walls at around 4.50am. The road was blocked off by police during the morning, however traffic was back to normal by the evening.

A householder living on the road said “a elderly male driver lost control of the car and went across three driveways before coming to a stop”.

Another nearby resident said “I could hear a huge bang from my house”.

The driver of the car was confirmed dead on scene and locals have been leaving flowers near the broken wall. Shockingly, another car crash happened near Beake Avenue on Radford Road before the wall crash. In that incident, the car ended up on its roof but the driver walked away.
