A BRITISH man has died after driving his 4X4 into a gully.

The 65-year-old, who has not been named, fell 50 metres after his Toyota came off the road in the outskirts of Torrox on Friday.

“We are aware of the death of a British national in a car accident near Torrox,” a spokesman from the British Embassy told the Olive Press.

“We have been providing support to the next of kin.”

A friend of the man, who lived with his wife in La Rabita, told press he ‘never drank’.

He had not been wearing a seatbelt.
