Man dies after hitting wild boar on M4
POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a motorist was killed after crashing into a wild boar.
The 47-year-old man was driving his Seat Ibiza on the M4 between Chippenham and Swindon in Wiltshire on Monday evening when he collided with the wild pig before being hit by a lorry.
Wiltshire Police closed the road for eight hours to investigate the scene where the man, from Royal Wootton Bassett, died.
A spokesman said: “It is quite rare for a wild boar to be on the motorway.”
