Surrey Police car crash victim dies at Hogs Back

A man died when he was hit by a police car as he walked on the A31 in Surrey.

The 21-year-old victim was struck by the vehicle on Hogs Back, just before 03:35 GMT in Puttenham, police said.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has been informed and it is not known if any officers were injured.

Police said their car was responding to a call, but would not comment further until investigations are complete.

The westbound carriageway was closed for several hours, between the A3 slip road and Puttenham, following the collision but has since re-opened.

The IPCC said Surrey Police had referred the incident to them and its investigators had been sent to the scene.
