Appeal for dash cam footage after fatal A50 collision

Posted on 23rd November 2018

Officers investigating a fatal collision between an HGV and a pedestrian are appealing for witnesses.

The collision is reported to have happened around 6.40am on Thursday, November 22 just after the Derby South services at Shardlow.

A 36-year-old woman from Derby was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman’s family have been made aware, and our thoughts are with them at this sad time.

Sergeant Scott Riley from Derbyshire police’s Collision Investigation Unit said: “We are appealing to anyone who was driving eastbound between junctions 2 and 1 between 6am and 6.45am to contact us, especially if they have dash cam footage.

“We would particularly like to speak to anyone who saw a black Vauxhall Astra pulled into the side after the services or a pedestrian beside the road.

“In addition, anyone who was travelling on the A50 and surrounding routes from 5.30am on November 22, is asked to review their dash cam footage for the black Astra and contact us with any information.”
