Police accident signA moped rider was killed following a collision on the A3 last night (September 5). Surrey Police are appealing for witnesses.

The collision occurred on the southbound carriageway of the A3 at Hurtmore around 11.40pm.

The moped is believed to have collided with the carriageway and the rider was then struck by another vehicle. The moped rider, a man in his 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene around 12-30am.

The A3 was closed in both directions while emergency services, including the air ambulance, dealt with the incident. The northbound carriageway was reopened around 1-15am, while the southbound carriageway was reopened around 5am once the vehicles had been recovered.

Sergeant Gary Wright from the Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We believe the moped has collided with the carriageway causing the rider to be flung from the vehicle and he has then been struck by another vehicle.

“We have spoken to a number of witnesses but would particularly like to speak to anyone travelling southbound on the A3 around the time of the incident who thinks they may have been involved in a collision or has sustained damage to their vehicle which was not there before.

“We would also like to speak to the drivers of any other vehicles who stopped to assist at the scene but did not wait to speak to police, as we believe they may have information which could assist our investigation.”

If you can help, please contact the Collision Investigation Unit at Surrey Police on 101, quoting incident reference P14258578 or Operation Bayford.
