A man has died after a head on collision which left two other people injured. The crash happened this afternoon on the A458 between Cressage and Cound in Shropshire.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said:
“On arrival crews found a car and a 4×4 vehicle that had suffered severe damage and was on its roof. Tragically, it was not possible to save the life of the driver of the car, a man, and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
A 62 year old woman who was the front seat passenger was taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital by ambulance. The 76 year old man, who was the only occupant of the 4×4, suffered head and facial injuries.

A car was deliberately driven at a security worker as part of an attempted cash-in-transit robbery, according to police.
The G4S employee ran into a petrol station during the incident at a Tesco store on the Wrekin Retail Park in Telford in Shropshire, at about 8.40am this morning.
It's believed the car was parked near the petrol station for up to an hour before the attempted robbery.
Nothing was stolen and the car then drove off in the direction of the Ketley Brook roundabout.
The A49 in Ludlow is closed in both directions due to an accident and the resulting recovery work and fuel spillage at the junction with the A456 in Woofferton.
It's thought the road will be closed until lunchtime.

Cristiano Malvone, aged 47, from Shrewsbury, died last month following a collision on the A458 near Ford on 14 November.
His brother Gino has said:
My brother Cristiano was taken from me and his family too soon. He was kind at heart, funny and a loving father to his daughter.
We will miss his cheeky personality which made him capable of making everyone around him feel alive - and that is how we feel in our heart and soul, that he will always be alive.
I can hear his voice, see his smile. We, his family and his friends will miss him always, we will never forget him.
He is at home now with his mum and dad where he belongs. The pain will pass,the memories will never fade. Thank you for being my brother, we will never stop loving you.
