We are appealing for witnesses after a man died following a collision on the motorway in Stafford.
Shortly before 3.40am on Saturday (8 April), a pedestrian and an HGV collided on the southbound carriageway of the M6 at junction 13.
We attended the scene alongside our colleagues from Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service and paramedics from West Midlands Ambulance Service.
Sadly, the pedestrian, a 43-year-old local man, was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin are currently being supported by specially-trained officers at this difficult time.
The road was closed whilst officers completed their initial inquiries at the scene. The driver of the HGV stayed in the area following the collision and is assisting officers with their investigation.
We are keen to speak to any witnesses or those who may have dashcam footage of the area at the time of the collision or saw the pedestrian in the area prior to the incident.
Contact us by calling 101, quoting incident 116 of 8 April, or use the Live Chat function on our website – www.staffordshire.police.uk
You can also get in touch with the serious collision investigation unit (CIU) directly by emailing [email protected]
