A MAN has died following a collision in Flintshire, police have said.

Shortly before 8am on Monday, police were notified of a collision on the A548 in Bagillt involving two vehicles – a Vauxhall Corsa and a transit pick-up.

The emergency services were called to the scene including the Air Ambulance, but the driver of the Corsa was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sergeant Steve Richards of the Roads Policing Unit is appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

He said: “Anybody who was in the area at the time of the collision, or anybody who may have been travelling along the route and who may have dash cam is asked to contact us immediately.”
