Nothing could be done to save a man who died after a car crash in Warwick last night (Monday), West Midlands Ambulance Service said.
Warwickshire Police were called to reports of a single vehicle collision near the bottom Primrose Hill in Warwick at around 10pm.
The driver of the car, a man in his thirties, was pronounced deceased at the scene. His next of kin have been informed. No one else was injured.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a car which had collided with a tree.
"The occupant, a man, sustained serious injuries. Sadly, nothing could be done by ambulance staff to save the man and he was confirmed dead on scene.”
A resident who lived nearby heard the crash from her house.
She said: "I heard a loud bang, and before I knew it, there were police and ambulances everywhere."
At the scene the following morning, tracks believed to be from a recovery vehicle could be seen on the grass verge and pavement.
