Families tried to help man following crash in Knypersley
Residents went out to the aid of a 66-year-old man whose vehicle had ploughed into a wall.
But despite their valiant efforts the man was pronounced dead at the scene of the tragedy on Park Lane in Knypersley on Sunday night.
And the residential stretch was closed off for more than five hours following the 10.45pm crash as specialist investigators analysed the scene.
It is understood the man's vehicle, a Nissan Navara pick-up, first collided with a lamppost before crashing into a wall and coming to rest on a household's driveway and garden.
