Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision on the A5 in Milton Keynes.

The incident happened at around 10.30am yesterday (6/7) on the southbound carriageway.

A white Mercedes had joined the road from A509 Portway when it collided with the central barrier and came to rest in the opposite carriageway.

The driver, who has been confirmed by Thames Valley Police as a 46-year-old man, sadly died at the scene despite the efforts of South Central Ambulance Service. His next of kin are being supported by specially trained officers.

Investigating officer PC Amy Harnett, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said, “Very sadly, as a result of this collision, a man had died. The thoughts of all of us at Thames Valley Police are with their family at this extremely upsetting time.

“At this time this collision is not being treated as suspicious but I am appealing for any witnesses to this incident to please come forward and assist us with our enquiries.

“I am particularly looking to hear from anyone who may have been travelling southbound on the A5 and who has dash-cam which has captured the collision, or the moments leading up to it, to please contact us in case it has captured something that could help our investigation.
