POLICE have ruled out any suspicious circumstances in the case of a 50-year-old man who died after the car he was driving collided with a granite wall on La Pulente Hill last month.

Adrian Fowler, pictured with his son Joe, died on Sunday 24 June

Adrian Spencer Fowler was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision at 9.22 am on Sunday 24 June.

The investigation remains open, PC Glenn Cleeves of the States police said yesterday at the opening of an inquest into the Islander’s death.

Mr Fowler was travelling up La Pulente Hill when the accident occurred. He failed to make the hairpin bend and his Silver Peugout 307 went into the wall.

Yesterday, Deputy Viscount Mark Harris recorded the preliminary cause of death as ‘chest injuries’ and formally released the body for cremation. A final cause of death will be established once the results of tissue and toxicology tests are returned.

A post-mortem was carried out on 29 June by Home Office forensic pathologist Dr Russell Delaney.

Mr Fowler was unemployed and single at the time of his death, the inquest heard. No other vehicles were involved in the accident and Mr Fowler was travelling alone in the car.
