Pedestrian seriously injured in collision with HGV on Wrexham bypass
A pedestrian has been seriously injured following a collision on the bypass near to Plas Coch overnight.
Police say, “At 23:43hrs last night police were called to a report of a collision involving a HGV and a pedestrian on the southbound carriageway, Junction 5 of the A483.”
The pedestrian was taken to the Wrexham Maelor Hospital but he has since been transferred to hospital in Stoke with serious, life threatening injuries.
Sergeant Stephen Richards of the Roads Policing Unit said: “We are appealing to anybody who may have witnessed the pedestrian prior to the collision to come forward. Equally we’d like to hear from anybody who may have been travelling along the A483 and who may have dash cam to also contact us.”
Anybody with information is asked to contact officers at the Roads Policing Unit on 101 or via the live webchat quoting reference number Y022943.
The northbound part of the bypass was closed off overnight for several hours with diversions in place:
Northbound part of the bypass closed by Plas Coch – appears traffic being taken off and diverted on the Ruthin Rd junction – however closure of that road still in place last we heard.
