A woman has died after being hit by two cars as she walked along a motorway slip road in the early hours of New Year’s Day.
Police confirmed that a female pedestrian died in a fatal collision on the M32, in Eastville, Bristol, at 2.15am on New Year’s Day.
Only hours after welcoming the new year in the tragic accident occurred on the slip road, which was shut for several hours.
An Avon and Somerset Police spokesperson said: “We’re appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage following a fatal collision on the M32 in Bristol this morning.
“A pedestrian, a woman, was struck by two vehicles on the Junction 2 southbound slip road at around 2.15am and tragically died at the scene.
“The slip road remains closed while enquiries continue to be carried out.
“We’re keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time who witnessed the incident or who has dashcam which could help our investigation.”
This has been far from the only deadly accident in and around the new years.
Ireland alone saw 12 people die in fatal accidents on their roads that weekend.
There were several crashes across the UK on New Year’s Eve which left seven people dead.
At least four others are thought to have been injured in the crashes.
