A 78-YEAR-OLD man was killed in a crash on an A40 slip road in Hilling­don.

The London Air Am­bu­lance were called to the scene in Freeze­land Way, close to the junc­tion with Long Lane, fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent on Fri­day last week.

The man’s next of kin have been in­formed.

Po­lice say he was lo­cal but he is yet to be for­mally iden­ti­fied and a post­mortem ex­am­i­na­tion was due to take place to­day (Wed­nes­day).

The man was on foot when he was in­volved in the col­li­sion with a white Re­nault Kan­goo.

The driver stopped at the scene and was not ar­rested.

London Am­bu­lance Ser­vice was called to the road at around 11.30am, and it alerted the po­lice and the London Air Am­bu­lance crew, who pro­vided med­i­cal as­sis­tance but were un­able to save the man, who died at the scene.

A London Air Am­bu­lance spokesman said: “We were called to re­ports of a road traf­fic col­li­sion in­volv­ing a pedes­trian and a car near Hilling­don Cir­cus.

“Sadly, de­spite ex­ten­sive ef­forts to re­sus­ci­tate the pa­tient, a man was pro­nounced dead at the scene by the doc­tor from London’s Air Am­bu­lance.”

An eye wit­ness de­scribed see­ing work­men who ap­peared to be re­pair­ing a cy­cle path that runs the length of the slip road which serves the A40.
