Two pedestrians who were killed on the A47 in Norfolk on Sunday had asked someone to call the police shortly before their deaths, it's been revealed.
The man and the woman, who are thought to have been in their 20s and from Lithuania, were struck by a car at Terrington St John.
Police now say that only a single silver Kia was involved in the collision, and there were no other cars present as first thought.
The death is being treated as suspicious following some accounts from witnesses that the woman may have been pushed into the oncoming traffic.
Officers claim the man and the woman were walking barefoot towards King's Lynn.
"As a result of enquiries, our earliest sighting of this man and woman is now at 12.30pm on the A47 Elm roundabout at Wisbech.
We now know that, at 1.20pm, they stopped at Worzals Farm Shop in Walpole Highway and both the woman and man separately asked an assistant to call the police – they gave no explanation and they left before police were called. Witnesses then saw them again walking along the verge of the A47 east-bound dual carriageway, where they are struck and killed by a single vehicle at 2.15pm.
They would have posed an unusual sight – the woman wearing a bright pink vest-top and the man in designer-style jean shorts – both walking barefoot along one of our busiest trunk roads on one of the hottest days of the year."
