“I would ask anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or who may have dash-cam footage, and has not yet spoken to or provided this information to officers, to contact us as soon as possible.“The road was closed for just over six hours and diversions were in place. I would like to thank members of the public for their patience while we carried out our investigation into this serious collision.

If anyone saw anything or has dashcam footage they should call police on 101, quoting incident number 2947 of 11 July.
