Trawsfynydd crash: pensioner dies in hospital

A pensioner has died following a two vehicle crash near Trawsfynydd last week.

The man in his seventies was driving a black Jeep Cherokee when it collided with a silver Peugeot van on the A4212 junction with the A470 on Sunday 5th August.

He was airlifted to the Royal Stoke University Hospital but died a week later. His family are being supported by a specially trained liaison officer.

”Equally, anybody who may have been in the area at the time and who may have dash cam footage are urged to please contact the Roads Policing Unit.”
