A 70-year-old man was killed when his car swerved off the road and into a field on Friday (March 8).
John Parrish, who lived in Shefford died after his Skoda Yeti came off Ireland Road next to the A600 between Shefford and Rowney Warren.
It is not know what caused Mr Parrish’s car to leave the road at around 6.38am.
Bedfordshire Police have launched an investigation.
PC Chris Naughton is appealing for anyone who may have seen the Skoda Yeti in the area that morning, or saw other vehicles in the area at the time that may have been the cause for the driver to lose control.
PC Naughton said: “The car was travelling towards Ireland from the B568 and clipped the nearside kerb before leaving the road and rolling into an adjacent field.
“The collision was reported after the car was seen by a passing motorist. Sadly the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.”
He added: “The time and remote location of this collision makes it very difficult to establish what caused the driver to swerve off the road.
“Something may have been in the road to cause him to swerve or perhaps another vehicle. Whatever the reason it is right that we understand the circumstances that led to this man’s death.”
