A man has died following a collision in Leicester’s Glenfield Road in the early hours of this morning (Friday 3 February).
A silver Mercedes AMG collided with a pedestrian – a man in his 40s – close to the junction with Henton Road.
Police were called shortly before 2.30am but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 27-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He has since been released under investigation.
Road closures that were in place have now been lifted.
Detectives are keen to speak to the drivers of two other cars – a small, dark hatchback and a silver estate – which are known to have been in the area at the time the collision occurred.
Detective Inspector Steve Kilsby, from the SCIU, said: “From what we know so far, I believe the drivers of these two vehicles will have information or footage that could help our investigation and I would urge them to make contact with police.
“I’d also ask anyone else who was in the area at the time and witnessed the collision or saw the car involved beforehand to get in touch. Any details you’re able to provide could help.”
