Cirencester crash appeal

Police investigating a fatal crash on the Cirencester bypass have renewed their appeal for witnesses.

A car driven by a Corsham woman hit a 59 year old pedestrian from Cirencester between the hospital roundabout and Deer Park School at 5.45pm on Wednesday 2 January. The pedestrian died in hospital.

Although witness appeal boards have been out for over a week, we have had only one witness who was in the vehicle following the Audi. I am keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw anybody crossing the dual carriageway or stood on the grass central reservation waiting to cross around the time.

This would have been the first day back at work for many after the Christmas break so possibly would stick in the mind more than most days. I’m surprised that we have only one witness when I would normally expect many more given the circumstances, location and time of day.
