Passenger dies in fall from moving truck in Southampton

A man has died after apparently falling from a moving pick-up truck travelling out of Southampton city centre.

The passenger, thought to be in his 30s, fell from a black double-cab Toyota Hilux travelling along the A35 Redbridge Causeway, police said.

The incident happened on the westbound carriageway near the junction with Commercial Road in Totton at about 23:50 BST on Friday.

It is thought the truck was travelling from the Southampton Boat Show.

The man, who police have yet to formally identify, is not from Hampshire.

Police want to speak to anyone who saw the vehicle in the area of the boat show at Mayflower Park, or during its journey on the A35 late on Friday night.

Police said the incident was not being treated as suspicious.
