Senior found in Warwick road dies
A senior citizen found on the ground on Middle Road in Warwick over the weekend died in hospital at around noon yesterday.
According to a police spokesman, at around 9am on Sunday officers responded to a report of a man, later identified as 76-year-old Augustus Uberbacher, lying in the road near the junction with Belmont Hills Drive.
“The man was awake but unable to communicate,” the spokesman said. “He was conveyed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, where he was admitted. At about 12pm today, he passed away at the hospital.”
While the spokesman said the circumstances surrounding the death of Mr Uberbacher do not appear to be suspicious, an autopsy will be carried out to determine the cause of death. Police are appealing for any witnesses who were in the above area at that time and may have seen Mr Uberbacher to contact them. All information should be passed to Detective Sergeant Hayden Small at Hamilton Police Station on 247-1429 or the general police number 205-0011.
