Appeal for witnesses following fatal collision on the M27
Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision on the M27 on Friday (11 August).
We were called to a report that at approximately 1.15pm a black BMW 330E had collided with a white Ford Fiesta and the central reservation barrier. The BMW then left the road and collided with the nearside verge between junction 2 and 3 on the westbound carriageway.
Despite the best efforts of emergency services and members of the public who stopped to help, the driver, a 35-year-old man from Bradford, was pronounced dead.
His family have been made aware and are being supported by specialist officers.
We are now asking for anyone with information about the collision who has not already spoken to police to come forward.
Were you in the area at the time? Perhaps you saw a black BMW or white Fiesta on the M27 shortly before 1.15pm?
We would particularly like to speak to anyone with relevant dash cam footage.
If you have any information about this incident, please report online via our website or call 101 quoting reference 44230323927/Operation Brae.
The M27 was closed between J2 and J3 for approximately four hours whilst specialist officers conducted enquiries at the scene. We would like to thank all those diverted or inconvenienced by this for their patience and co-operation.
