Man dies in crash beteen tractor and van.

A 21-YEAR-OLD man has died after a horror crash between a car and a farm sprayer closed off a major road in Lichfield for more than three hours.

Emergency crews were deployed to the fatal accident on the A5 at Weeford yesterday morning.

Eye-witnesses said the vehicle had left the 'carriageway and careered into a bush' after hitting an agricultural field sprayer shortly after 11.20am.

A spokesman for Staffordshire Police added: "Collision investigation officers are appealing for witnesses to a serious road traffic collision in the Lichfield area.

"It involved a white Citroen van and a Bateman agricultural vehicle. Sadly, the 21-year-old driver of the van was pronounced dead at the scene. The tractor driver was unhurt."
