A BRITISH OAP has died after crashing his car into a lamppost on the Costa del Sol.
Pronounced dead at the scene, 71-year-old expat George Brooks crashed as he left Malaga’s Materno-Infantil Hospital.
Believed to have passed out at the wheel, Brooks was heading towards his hometown of Nerja when he careered off the road crashing into a lamppost.
Remarkably, no-one was injured despite Brooks driving across four lanes of traffic.
Firefighters pulled him from the car, however paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene after attempting to revive him.
