A man who died after being hit by a car on the M25 was a Highways Agency traffic officer who was dealing with the aftermath of another crash, it has emerged.
He was struck by a Vauxhall Vectra on the clockwise carriageway at junction 5 in Kent on Tuesday following an earlier collision involving a single vehicle.
The 60-year-old, from Gravesend, has not yet been named but was pronounced dead at the scene.
Two of the three occupants of the Vectra were taken to hospital, one with suspected serious injuries.
A Highways Agency spokesman said: "The officer's next of kin have been informed and our deepest sympathies are with them at this time."
Police are appealing for information after a pedestrian was killed in a collision on the M25 between Junction 4 and Junction 5 on 25th September 2012 at about 2.15pm.
They were hit by a maroon Vauxhall Vectra, while they were attending an earlier incident on the motorway.
Kent Police were called to a road traffic collision on the M25, at junction 5, near South Chevening. The collision involved one vehicle and a minor injury. While attending the incident, a pedestrian was involved in a further collision with a car.
This is on the M25 prior to where it joins the M26 on the clockwise carriageway. The M25clockwise carriageway has been closed between junction 4 and junction 5. Clacketts Road slip junction was closed to the clockwise carriageway.
The road is likely to be closed for several hours as the Serious Collision Investigation Unit attend. Traffic is being diverted off along the A21 slip road, to rejoin the motorway from A21.
