A man has died following a collision in Wychbold.

Police and emergency services were called to the A38 under the bridge for the M5 shortly before 4.30pm on Monday (13 August).

An Eddie Stobart HGV lorry is believed to have been in collision with a pedestrian, who had previously been driving a grey VW caddy panel van. It is thought an altercation may have begun on the southbound M5 carriageway between junction 4a and junction 5.

A man in his 60s suffered chest, pelvic and head injuries and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital but subsequently died. His next of kin has been informed and the family are being supported by specially trained officers.

A man in his 50s has been arrested on suspicion of murder. He has been released on bail until mid-September pending further enquiries.

Detective Inspector John Cashion said: “A thorough investigation has been launched to establish the circumstances behind the collision.

“Enquiries are ongoing and we would encourage anyone who saw the vehicles and the manner in which they were being driven on the M5 or the A38 prior to the incident to come forward.

“We are also keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or who has dashcam footage of the moments leading up to the collision.

“Our thoughts remain with the man’s family at this difficult time.”
