The A38 northbound near junction 22 of the M5 at Brent Knoll is closed following a fatal collision overnight.
We were called at 5am Tuesday 17 September to a collision involving a pedestrian and a car.
Sadly the male pedestrian died at the scene. While formal identification is yet to take place, we’ve informed his next of kin.
