“We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident to please come forward, particularly anyone who may have dashcam footage that captured the collision.
“This happened on a busy main road at a time when there likely would have been quite a few cars still driving around so we are hopeful that there will be a number of key witnesses who can assist with our investigation.
