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."
