As news becomes available, we learn that it was a head-on collision in Chelwood, U.K. that led to the death of evangelical pastor Tony Palmer July 20.
Bishop Palmer caught the attention of the world in February 2014, when he carried Pope Francis’ video greeting to Pentecostals gathered at the Kenneth Copeland conference.
A reader has sent this information from the Bath Chronicle. Although the article doesn’t name the victim, the reader–who lives in the local area–confirms that this is the accident which claimed the life of Tony Palmer:
Police have confirmed the man died at Southmead Hospital on Sunday evening and his family are being supported by a specially trained family liaison officer.
Officers are appealing for witnesses to the collision, which happened at 6.50am on Sunday on the A368 at Chelwood, to come forward.
A silver coloured Audi 4 was travelling from Blagdon towards Chelwood Bridge when it was involved in a collision with a motorcycle travelling in the opposite direction.
Police are keen to speak to the driver of a Ford Cougar, which is believed to have been on the A368 at the time of the incident, who could have useful information to help the investigation.
Please keep Bishop Palmer and his family in your prayers.
