Two men arrested after man dies following collision on Airport Road

Police are appealing for witnesses after a pedestrian died in a collision with a grey Audi A3 on Airport Road in Bristol at 9.56pm yesterday.

They say that the man in his 20s had been walking to work on the pavement.

“Sadly he died at the scene. While he hasn’t yet been formally identified, his next of kin are being supported by a specially-trained officer. Our thoughts are with them at this awful time.

“A 30-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. A second man was also arrested in connection with the incident and both remain in police custody.”

The road was closed overnight while collision investigators examined the scene and the vehicle was recovered. It reopened at about 9.20am this morning.

If you saw the collision or have any dashcam or other footage showing the manner in which the Audi was being driven in the moments beforehand, call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5222164028.
