Officers are appealing for witnesses and information after a man died following a collision in Hereford.


Police received reports in the early hours of this morning (Sunday 8 October) that a man was left seriously injured on Holme Lacy Road following a collision with a vehicle.

Despite the efforts of paramedics the man, aged in his 50s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

While the cause of death has yet to be fully established, the man is believed to have been struck by a vehicle causing him to suffer fatal injuries.

Detective Inspector Mel Reynolds said: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the man's family at this incredibly difficult and upsetting time.

“Our enquiries are continuing and we’re particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the man, or were themselves in the vicinity, of Rotherwas Industrial Estate towards Holme Lacy Road after 1am on Sunday morning.

“We would also like to speak to anyone who may have dash-cam footage, or who may have witnessed any vehicles, or people in the area acting suspiciously during this time.”

Anyone who has any information is urged to email PC Jonathan Lynes on jonathan.lynes@westmercia.police.uk quoting incident 68i of Sunday 8 October, 2023.

Alternatively, if you have information but don’t feel comfortable speaking to police, you can speak to the independent charity Crimestoppers. It is 100% anonymous, they never ask your name and they cannot trace your call or I.P address. You can contact them online or by calling 0800 555 111.
