Driver Dies in Cheltenham Coach Crash

Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal coach crash in Cheltenham this morning.

Police were called to St Margarets Road at about 7.40am after the coach struck two or three vehicles and then collided with the cinema.

The driver, a Gloucester man in his fifties, was the only person injured. He was taken to Cheltenham General Hospital by ambulance but was later pronounced dead.

Police are now investigating the cause of the collision.

The road has been closed from Winchcombe Street to Monson Avenue to both vehicles and pedestrians and officers are therefore urging members of the public to be patient and to plan their journeys around alternative routes where possible. Restrictions are also in place on roads leading onto St Margarets Road.
