A spokesman said: “The A245 Kingston Road has been closed to traffic while specialist investigators work to understand the cause of the collision. “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 4.50pm and 5.10pm 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.”

Anyone with information or footage they believe may assist the investigation is asked to contact Surrey Police using the online chat on the Surrey Police website or by calling 101, quoting ref PR/45210038320.
