February 27 2019

A MAN died in a crash involving two lorries and a van on the Avon Ring Road.


Two lorries and a van collided on the A4174 shortly before midday on February 14.
The stretch of the road where the man died, near the Wick Wick roundabout in Downend, by the Willy Wicket pub, is the main route between Emersons Green and Bristol.
The man who died is understood to be Sean Owens, 53, from Portishead.
No -one else is believed to have been injured in the incident.
The road was shut completely for more than two and a half hours after the collision and the eastbound carriageway was closed overnight, as specialist collision investigation officers examined the scene and the vehicles involved were removed.
Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward with information about the collision, and would particularly like to hear from anyone who has dashcam footage from the time of the incident.
Anyone who can help the investigation should contact the police online or call 101, quoting incident reference number 5219 033 167.
