PARAMEDICS were unable to save a man who lost control of his car near to High Roding on Tuesday evening.

The 35-year-old, from the High Easter area, died after his black Honda Civic crashed into trees.

The accident happened around 6pm, near Brands Farm on the B184 Ongar Road, as the man was travelling from High Roding to Great Dunmow.

Fire crews from Leaden Roding, Dunmow, Harlow and Chelmsford attended the scene.

Dunmow fire station officer Keith Crow said: "It looks like the chap probably lost control of his car then went off the road, hit a couple of trees and ended up back in the middle of the road. We spent some time cutting the roof of the vehicle off, although he wasn't actually trapped in the vehicle.

"The doctor examined him and pronounced him dead at the scene."

Four calls were made to the East of England Ambulance Service and an ambulance was dispatched.

A spokesman said: "The two-door Honda Civic rolled over after the driver lost control. On arrival the ambulance crew immediately called for a Basics Emergency Doctor and a paramedic manager.

"There was nothing that could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene by the doctor."

Anyone with information about the crash should call PC Andrew Allington on 01376 330722.
