Moped rider killed in A3 collision at Hurtmore

A man has died after he came off his moped on the A3 in Surrey and was hit by another vehicle.

Police said the crash happened on the southbound carriageway at Hurtmore, near Godalming, about 23:40 BST.

The man in his 20s was pronounced dead at the scene, officers said.

The road was closed in both directions while emergency teams dealt with the incident. Surrey Police said it fully opened by about 05:00 BST on Saturday.

Officers have not yet named the man who died.

Sgt Gary Wright urged anyone who saw what happened to contact the collision investigation unit.

"We have spoken to a number of witnesses but would particularly like to speak to anyone travelling southbound on the A3 around the time of the incident who thinks they may have been involved in a collision or has sustained damage to their vehicle which was not there before," he said.

He also said officers like to speak to drivers who stopped to assist at the scene but did not wait to speak to police.
