A MAN whose car veered across the road and into a ditch has died in hospital.

The crash happened at Stainforth on 10.44am on Sunday, April 29, during heavy rain when the 49-year-old’s black KA swerved onto the opposite side of the road, before mounting the verge and stopping in a ditch.

The man was driving along Kirton Lane towards Thorne, and it is believed he may have been ill at the wheel which may have caused the crash.

He was taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary, where he died on Monday.

Officers are appealing for witnesses to the crash or to the manner in which the car was being driven just prior to it.
