Man dies after car leaves A19 and hits lamppost

A man has died almost a week after his car left the road in County Durham.

The driver of the Peugeot 206 suffered serious injuries when it hit a lamppost on the A19, close to the Easington services on Friday.

He was taken to Middlesbrough's James Cook University Hospital but has now died.

Durham Police said he was the only occupant of the car, and appealed for any witnesses to the incident at 03:00 GMT who have not come forward to do so.
