An elderly man who was involved a car crash on the A5 near Towcester last Friday has died in hospital.
Kennneth Kirkpatrick, aged 80, of Oak Street, Upper Weedon, was travelling northbound along the A5 in a silver Mercedes when his vehicle was involved in a collision with a white Volkswagen LT35 van, travelling in the opposite direction, near Fosters Booth.
As a result of the collision, the van crashed into the Red Lion pub and damaged the entrance. The van also began leaking diesel.
