Man, 80, dies in car crash in Tasmania

An elderly man has died in a single vehicle crash in Tasmania's southeast.

Paramedics attended the scene at Dodges Ferry about 4pm on Friday, but the driver and sole occupant, an 80-year-old Lewisham man, could not be saved, police said in a statement on Saturday.

Early investigations show the man might have suffered from an unrelated medical issue, and a report is being prepared for the coroner.
