The death of a CONSULTANCY adviser in a car accident was a “tragic accident”, an inquest has concluded.
Nicholas Stuart Jackson of Kidderminster was fatally injured on March 15 this year in the horror collision.
An inquest heard how Mr Jackson was driving a Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class on the A448 Comberton road towards Kidderminster around midday.
The car left the road, crossed a grassy embankment and hit a tree head-on.
Mr Jackson was heard to have no pulse when he was found by paramedics.
Deputy Coroner James Puzey said the 54-year-old had no known medical conditions. Mr Jackson tested negative for drugs and alcohol, according to a toxicology report.
PC Morris’ evidence was read by the coroner, who said the car’s speedometer had a reading of “approximately 62 to 63 mph”. The speed limit on the road is 50 mph.
The damage to the Mercedes was “consistent with a high speed collision”, according to PC Morris’ statement.
Mr Puzey said the speedometer reading was “not necessarily reliable” when the investigation was concluded. He said Mr. Jackson was also wearing a seatbelt.
The coroner concluded that Mr. Jackson’s death was the result of an accident.
He said: “It was a tragic accident rather than a deliberate act.”
