I was surprised to read this - 20mph speed limits mustn't apply on the ramp at Heathrow  :o

by the tone of the report, I suspect the deceased became unwell and then collided as opposed to the collision causing the arrest?

It's a common scenario on ordinary roads but still gets reported and counted as an RTC because it happened in a vehicle.

Speed not necessarily a factor?

Yeah,that makes sense,more detail has been added since it was first reported.
