The Independent Police Complaints Commission has launched an investigation after a man died in a crash on the M3 in Hampshire.
Officers were pursuing a blue BMW just before 1am yesterday morning when both vehicles stopped on the hard shoulder between junctions 12 and 13 at Eastleigh.
The driver of the BMW got out the car and stepped onto the carriageway, and was then hit by at least one other vehicle.
South Central Ambulance Service attended but the man died en route to hospital.
The M3 was closed in both directions between junctions 12 and 13 between 1.30 and 6.30am. The southbound carriageway reopened at 6.30am and the northbound at 8.30am.
