A pedestrian died and the police had shut the motorway for around 9 hours then. The person died on the M4 motorway after he had been struck by a lorry. As a result, a part of the motorway between Newport and Cardiff was shut for around 9 hours after the man was struck by an articulated lorry. This incident occurred at 3.45 GMT. South Wales Police said that he had died at the scene. The M4 was initially shut in both the directions between the locations of Castleton and Coryton prior to the store being reopened eastbound. The closure had caused heavy congestion as the traffic did divert along the A48 and A470 through Cardiff.
Investigations to be on for the colission to identify the suspect
The police had even said that a Renault HGV hit the pedestrian between the Junctions 30 and 32, which is situated in the north of Cardiff. They even said in one of their statements that the man was declared to be deceased right at the scene and his family were even supported y a specially trained liaison officer. The officers had even thanked the members of the public for assisting them at the scene and also for keeping their patience during the road closures. Also, it is being announced that anyone who might have seen the vehicle or the pedestrian by any chance before the colission has actually occurred needs to inform the police at the earliest.
Location identified and marked to fetch evidences
The investigators have started the painstaking work to find out the suspect behind the colission. They have been trying hard to find out what had actually happened on the stretch of the M4 earlier during the morning. A Marks and Spencer’s delivery HGV, the hazard warning lights were still seen to be flashing, and it is at a standstill in the lane which happens to be one of the westbound carriageways. Also, there were a few dotted yellow triangles that were marked for the purpose of investigation. Any report that will be found will be marked as evidence at an inquest. There was a bridge which was just yards away from the spot of the incident, the dog walkers and the runners were seen to stop to look by! We would wait for further investigations to fetch appropriate resolutions.
