The A36 Lower Bristol Road in Bath has re-opened both ways following the fatal collision earlier today.
Avon and Somerset police say:
"We know the closure caused disruption to traffic and the bus network and we'd like to thank the public for their patience while we carried out our examination of the scene and cleared the road.
"Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim and our enquiries into the circumstances of this collision will continue."
There is a limited First Bus service in Bath this morning due to a fatal accident that has blocked the entrance to its depot.
A serious crime scene, following a road traffic accident that happened in the early hours of this morning (not involving First Bus), has blocked the entrance to the First Bus depot on Lower Bristol Road.
Therefore, unfortunately, First Bus is unable to mobilise its 150 strong bus fleet and will be operating a very limited service in Bath this morning until such time as the police clear the crime scene.
The firm apologises for the inconvenience and says it is making every effort to secure buses from elsewhere across its network.
It is running a limited service between Bath and Bristol and on the Park and Ride but in the main services won’t operate.

Police say the road is likely to remain closed for several hours while the scene is fully examined and then cleared.
They are advising motorists to avoid the area and find alternative routes.
