Two die in road crashes in Cardiff and Gorseinon

Two people have died in separate road crashes involving parked cars in south Wales, say police.

The first incident happened at 0333 GMT on Sunday in Aberdore Road, Cardiff, when a 41-year-old man was killed.

About an hour later, a car collided with a row of parked vehicles at Gorseinon, near Swansea.

A woman passenger died at the scene of the crash in Frampton Road. The driver has been taken to hospital.

A police spokesperson said the Cardiff crash involved a local man who was driving a silver Ford Mondeo estate which collided with an unattended parked vehicle.

He was taken to the University Hospital of Wales in the city where he was pronounced dead.

The second collision in Gorseinon at 0431 GMT saw a black three-door Citroen Saxo motor car hit three parked and unattended cars.

The 23-year-old passenger, who was from the Gorseinon area, was taken to Morriston Hospital in Swansea where she was pronounced dead.

The road was closed for six hours while the force's road policing unit carried out investigations and recovered the cars.

The police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed either collision, stopped to provide assistance, or who may have seen the cars being driven prior to the separate incidents who have not yet given their details.
