A popular man from Little Chalfont died of severe head injuries after his car crashed into a tree an inquest has heard.
Lee Elston died when his car crashed into a tree in Nightingales Lane last year.
Lee, 26, was driving his blue Subaru Impreza when it crashed at around 6.35am on September 16.
The Little Chalfont resident was the only person in the vehicle and sadly died at the scene.
Thames Valley Police, who attended the scene, said it was “not likely” that Mr Elston was wearing a seatbelt due to its positioning when police looked at the vehicle, and believed that he had taken a bend too fast and lost control of the car.
However, it is thought that even if Lee had been wearing his seatbelt, his injuries would still have been fatal due to the sideways impact of the crash.
A toxicology report did not find any traces of alcohol in Mr Elston’s body and the medical cause of death was recorded as a severe head injury as a result of the crash.
Lee’s death was recorded as death by road traffic accident.
