An 86-year-old man who was left critically injured, after being in collision with a car in Newton Abbot more than a week ago, has died.

The pensioner, who has not yet been named, died as a result of his injuries following the incident, which took place on November 17.

Police received a call shortly before 5.25pm to say a red Mazda 626 had been in collision with a pedestrian between Churchills Roundabout and the Stover Vauxhall dealer at a private house called Whitehall Lodge.

The man was on life support in a critical condition at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.

The driver of the car, a 46-year-old woman from Bovey Tracey suffered no physical injuries. Anyone who has information should call the police on 101, quoting reference 0564 171112.

Yesterday two rush-hour crashes caused delays for motorists heading into Plymouth.

A motorcyclist was involved in a collision with a car in Mannamead, while a vehicle flipped onto its roof on the A38. Police and paramedics were sent to a stretch of the A38 near Ivybridge at 7.38am yesterday.
