North Wales Police appeal for witnesses following fatal incident in Wrexham

North Wales Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal incident in Wrexham overnight.

Shortly after 12am this morning (Sunday, October 22nd) we received a report a pedestrian walking on the A483 northbound between Junction 4 (A525 Ruthin Road) and Junction 5 (Mold Road interchange) had been hit by a vehicle.

The emergency services attended, but sadly, a man was pronounced dead at the scene.

His next of kin and the Coroner have been informed.

The road has since reopened, and enquiries are ongoing into the incident.

Detective Constable Donna Vernon said: “Our thoughts are with the man’s family and friends at this difficult time.

“I am urging anybody who may have been travelling along the A483 around the time of the incident, or anyone who may have dash cam footage to contact us.

“I’d also like to thank motorists for their patience whilst the road was closed.”

Anybody who may have information that could assist with the investigation is urged to contact us via the live web chat or by calling 101, quoting reference number 23001039592.
