Slough police release CCTV in relation to fatal road traffic accident
Thames Valley Police has released a CCTV image of a man they want to contact in relation to a fatal road collision in December.
A man captured in a grainy CCTV image could hold vital information relating to a road traffic fatality in the run up to Christmas, police say.
At around 11.25pm on Sunday 11 December 2016 a pedestrian was in the carriageway of the A412 Uxbridge Road, George Green.
He was then struck by at least one vehicle which failed to stop at the scene.
Sadly, the pedestrian, a 44-year-old man from Slough, died at the scene and his next of kin were informed.
A 32- year-old man from Slough was subsequently arrested on suspicion of failing to stop at the scene of a collision, causing death by dangerous driving and driving while unfit through drugs. He has been released on police bail. The incident was referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission and has been referred back to Thames Valley Police to undertake a supervised investigation.
Investigating officer, Det Sgt Ashley Hannibal of Roads Policing, said today:
“If you are the man in the CCTV or recognise who he is please contact police immediately. We believe the man may have vital information about the collision that might help our enquiries.
“I am also appealing to anyone else who might have any other information about the collision to come forward.
“The easiest way to contact police is by calling 101 and quoting reference 1596 (11/12/16), or by visiting your nearest police station”.
