Accident investigators have today issued an appeal for witnesses to come forward following a fatal crash in Congresbury yesterday (Friday).

A male pedestrian in his 60s was involved in a collision with a lorry at 10.05am in Station Road.

The man – whose name has not been released by police – received medical treatment at the scene, but could not be saved.

The A370 was closed for much of the day to allow experts to examine the scene to try to piece together events leading up to the incident.

A police spokesman told the Mercury that witnesses to the incident could hold crucial information.

The spokesman said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident who may have information to help our enquiries.”

Anyone able to help is asked to call collision investigators on 101, quoting reference CI/115/17.
