Appeal for witnesses to fatal collision near Skeffington
Main article content
Detectives are appealing for witnesses and motorists with dashcams to come forward following a fatal collision on the A47 near Skeffington.
Shortly after 11am yesterday (Wednesday 31 August) it was reported a white BMW 6 Series had collided with a lorry on the eastbound carriageway, near the junction with the B6047 Harborough Road.
Officers attended but the driver of the BMW – a man in his 60s – was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported and no arrests have been made.
Detective Sergeant Ed Des-Chanelle, from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU), said: “I’m particularly keen to speak to anyone who was travelling on the A47 and saw the BMW prior to the collision occurring – namely between 9.20am and 11am.
“I’d also ask any motorists with dashcam footage to come forward. Furthermore, I believe there may be people who saw the collision occur but left the scene prior to police attending.
“Any information you’re able to provide, no matter how insignificant you think it is, could help our investigation.”
