Rich oliemagnaat (80) is killed with a vehicle, wife critical

M23 crash: Man, 80, dies and woman is injured near Hooley

Mr. Carey's wife, Billi, was sitting in the passenger seat when the vehicle collided with the lorry - she sustained severe head injuries and remains critically ill in hospital. It's going to be the wealthy oliemagnaat, Ron Carey, from canada Calgary, alberta, canada.

She is unruffled in hospital and is in a stable situation, per Sussex Police.

Shocked onlookers said that Mr Carey - who is thought to have taken the wrong turn onto the busy motorway - was "thrown into the air like a rag doll" after his 1903 Knox Porcupine was struck by a lorry.

The London to Brighton run brings together pre-1905 cars to celebrate the "Locomotives on Highways Act" of 1896, which raised the speed limit to 23 km/h.

The pair were taking part in the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run after flying from their home in Paradise Valley, Arizona.

His friend Rick Pikulski told CTV News Calgary: 'It's very tragic, gut-wrenching news. "I've known Ron for nearly 40 years and he was very well-respected and well-liked".

Mr Pikulski, who got to know Mr Carey through their shared interest in vintage cars, added: 'It's terrible to think they were in a two-seat buggy going on to an expressway where they're travelling at 70mph. "He's a tremendous loss".

"This building wouldn't exist without Mr Carey's donation".

Pikulski echoed the sentiment: "He was very well-travelled and would go on these vintage vehicle rallies all the time. There, he was very much of that". It shouldn't have happened'.

Ron - who owns a £3.8million classic vehicle collection - was a prominent member of multiple vintage auto clubs and business circles around Calgary.

"We will continue to support the family and friends who are with her and work with the police to determine exactly what happened as safety is our highest priority".

Surrey Police urged anyone who witnessed the collision involving the 1903 Knox Runabout or has any information, including dashboard camera footage, to contact them. A 68-year-old driver died in the event two years ago.
