Police last night confirmed the death of a man, thought to be in his 70s, who was involved in a road accident in Cullingworth yesterday.

He was driving in Halifax Road when it is believed he fell ill at the wheel and crashed into a parked car shortly before 11am.

He was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary where he was later pronounced dead.

No-one else was injured, said a Police spokesman.

The crash caused the road to be shut for several hours while investigators examined the scene.

The dead man was not being named by police until his relatives had been informed.
