Preston Road: Man dies in hospital after collision with tree

Police are investigating a fatal collision in Preston Road, Brent and are appealing for witnesses or anyone with footage of the incident to come forward.

At around 01:15am on Tuesday, 25 April a grey Volkswagen was travelling northbound on Preston Road when it veered left and collided with a tree.

The 28-year-old male driver was the only occupant in the car.

The airbags in the car had activated and fast acting members of the public got the driver out of the vehicle. Encouragingly, he was conscious, breathing and answering questions.

Police, London Ambulance Service [LAS] and London Fire Brigade [LFB] were called. The driver was taken by LAS to hospital where his injuries were initially classified as not life threatening.

Unexpectedly, he sadly died in hospital on 29 April.
