A 55-YEAR-OLD man has died after suffering a heart attack driving his car along a country lane.
The tragedy happened on Sunday afternoon, at Harvil Road, Harefield, close to the entrance to the Dogs Trust.
No other vehicles are believed to have been involved in the accident, which saw the car run off road, and the police confirmed they are treating it as non-suspicious.
A London Ambulance spokesperson said: "We were called at 2.04pm on 11 September to reports that a person taken unwell was involved in a road traffic collision on Harvil Road. We sent an ambulance crew and a single responder in a car to the scene.
“Our staff treated one patient, a man who was in cardiac arrest. Despite extensive efforts by our staff to resuscitate him the patient sadly died at the scene."
The man's age was confirmed by police as 55, although his identity has not been made public.
Paul Stone, of Merle Avenue, Harefield, neighbourhood watch co-ordinator, witnessed the aftermath of the incident on his journey back from Uxbridge to Harefield.
He said: "The car was right up on the pavement, it was past the bend past the tip, it had been travelling towards Harefield. There were two police cars and an ambulance attending. We knew it wasn't good when we saw a what looked like someone being put into a body bag, but we couldn't stop as it wasn't safe to do so.
"The car was an estate car and one noticeable thing about it was the cycle rack on the back of it."
