The A451 Minster Road was closed for several hours following the crash, which happened near the Wyre Forest Crematorium and Cemetery around 7.56am and saw a Blue Jeep Cherokee leave the road while travelling towards Stourport-on-Severn and hit a tree.
West Mercia Police, West Midlands Ambulance Service and Midlands Air Ambulance attended the scene, which was closed off to allow ambulance staff to administer advance life-support to the man, who was found in a critical condition.
However, despite the best efforts of ambulance staff, it became clear that the man could not be saved and was pronounced dead at the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival, crews discovered one car had been involved in a collision and the driver, a man, was in a critical condition.
“Ambulance staff immediately began administering advanced life-support but unfortunately, despite everyone’s best efforts, it soon became apparent that he could not be saved and was confirmed dead at the scene.”
