Car came off road yards from crash barrier

The man who was killed in a crash on the A69 came off the road just yards before the crash barrier began.

He died after his car was flipped by a bank and crashed against a bridge.

Had he stayed on the road for just a few more yards, the barrier would have prevented him from hitting the bank.
