Officers are now appealing for witnesses to the crash which happened at the junction between A245 Kingston Road and Randalls Road. Police said: “We are keen to speak with everyone who saw or heard the collision – in particular anyone who was filling up at the BP petrol station; or has dash-cam or helmet-cam footage from the immediate area between 16:50 and 17:10; which may show the victim or HGV involved.
“We would ask that the public don’t speculate on the cause of the collision and allow our specialist Serious Collision Investigation Unit officers to carry out their work.
“There are currently local delays as people try to avoid the scene.
The roads remain closed but are likely to open later this evening.”
Anyone with information or footage that they think may help the investigation can contact Surrey Police on their website (surrey.police.uk) or by calling 101, quoting ref PR/45210038320.
