A pedestrian has been killed on the M5 in Worcestershire.
He was hit by a lorry on the southbound carriageway between junctions 5 and 6 near Droitwich shortly before 07:45 BST, West Mercia Police said.
The man was found lying in one of the lanes. It is not yet known why he was on the motorway, a police spokeswoman said, and he has not been identified.
All three southbound lanes were closed until about 11:15 BST while police investigated, leading to long delays.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: "The man was confirmed deceased at the scene. Nothing could be done to save him."
Police have appealed for anyone with information about the crash to contact officers.
