Southend: Man Dies After A127 Crash

A man has died following a crash in Southend.

Essex police say the driver of a silver Porsche appeared to have lost control and collided with a black Ford Focus on the A127 at about 6.35pm yesterday (Wednesday June 5th).

The man, who is in his 60s and from the Southend area, was taken to Southend General Hospital where he died.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out to establish the cause of death.
