Dashcam footage wanted to show lorry's 'manner of driving' or pedestrian prior to fatal A19 crash

Witnesses to a fatal crash on the A19 are being urged to contact police looking into a man’s death. No formal identification has taken place after Tuesday morning’s collision, but Cleveland Police say the pedestrian who died is a man in his 40s. They are now appealing for dashcam footage from any drivers in the area around the time of the crash, around 10.50am.

The force also wants anyone who witnessed either the pedestrian prior to the smash, or the “manner of driving” of the lorry. A spokeswoman said: “Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision involving a pedestrian and a lorry, whereby the pedestrian sadly died. “The collision happened at around 10.50am on Tuesday July 16, on the A19 southbound near to the A1027 overbridge.

“Officers would appeal to any witnesses who have not already spoken to police to come forward, as well as anyone who may have dash cam footage of the incident or anyone who may have seen the pedestrian or the manner of driving of the lorry prior to the collision.”

Emergency services have closed the A19

The A19 was closed in both directions between Norton and Billingham for around four hours after the crash, causing massive traffic delays across Teesside.

Any witnesses are asked to contact PC Andy Lawson from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101, quoting event number 120452.
