A MAN has died in a car crash just hours after the conclusion of the day's racing at Ascot. 

The victim, a 76 year-old from Ascot, was involved in a collision between two cars, a Volkswagen Sharan and a Ford Focus.

The cars collided in Kings Ride, near the junction with Prince Albert Drive at 11:30pm on Saturday October 21. 

The occupants of the vehicles were uninjured, and the next of kin of the victim have been informed. 

Investigating officer Sergeant Grant Thomas, of the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing based at Taplow, said: "I would like to appeal to anyone who saw the collision, which was sadly fatal, or who may have seen a man walking along Kings Ride at around the time of the collision, to contact police."
