Man, 83, dies after minor car crash in Bebington
An elderly man collapsed and died at the side of a road moments after a minor car crash in Wirral.
The 83-year-old man had been driving a silver VW Polo which had collided with a Ford Transit pick-up truck on Cross Lane in Bebington at about 11:00 BST.
He got out to talk to the other driver but collapsed and later died at Arrowe Park Hospital.
The man's wife was a passenger in the car at the time but police said she was not injured.
The 41-year-old van driver remained at the scene after the crash but also escaped uninjured.
Cross Lane was closed between Stanton Road and Heath Road until 13:00 BST to allow for investigators to visit the scene and for both vehicles to be recovered.
Police are appealing for witnesses to contact them.
