A man has died following a row with a driver at a zebra crossing, prompting a murder investigation.

The 69-year-old man died three days after allegedly being assaulted by the driver of a white Skoda Yeti in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire.

He had been discharged from hospital but died on Monday, three days after the alleged attack.

A 70-year-old man, from Gerrards Cross, and a 43-year-old man, from Hillingdon, were arrested on suspicion of murder.

Det Ch Insp Simon Steel said: "One of our lines of enquiry at this stage is that the victim sustained injuries during an assault... which may have played some part in his death three days later."

Police said the death was thought to be linked in the incident at about 20:45 GMT on Friday in Market Place.

"The driver of the vehicle stopped the car at the zebra crossing and an altercation took place between the driver and the victim," said a police spokesman.

"The victim sustained a number of injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment. He was discharged but died at his home in Lansdown Road on Monday."
