Driver, 75, dies in bypass crash in Tonypandy, Rhondda

A 75-year-old man has died in a three-vehicle collision which closed a Rhondda road for four hours.

A section of the A4119 Tonypandy bypass was closed in both directions after the crash at about 09:10 BST on Wednesday and has now reopened.

Police said a Peugeot 3008 car was travelling north when it was involved in a collision with a Ford Focus and a Vauxhall Meriva.

Officers are investigating and appealing for witnesses.

South Wales Police said in a statement: "Police are also asking any witnesses who may have seen the vehicles being driven prior to the collision and who have not yet given their details to contact them.

"The road was closed for around four hours while the initial investigations were carried out and the vehicles recovered."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the South Wales Police serious collision investigation unit on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
