IPCC witness appeal after man dies following police pursuit in Kempton Park

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is appealing for witnesses as it investigates a collision in which a man died following a police pursuit in Kempton Park, south west London, yesterday morning.

The collision, which happened at around 4.40am on the southbound A316 near to where the road meets the M3, involved a stationary HGV and a black Audi which was being pursued by Metropolitan Police vehicles.

The Audi driver, who was in his late 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene. His relatives have been informed.

The road was closed in both directions and traffic disruption in the area is expected to continue for some time.

IPCC investigators were sent to the scene and to the police post incident procedure, and an independent investigation has now begun.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact the IPCC by email at witness@ipcc.gsi.gov.uk (link sends e-mail) or by telephone on 0800 096 9070.

IPCC Deputy Chair Sarah Green said: “We have an independent investigation under way and would be grateful to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or any part of the incident. My sympathies go out to the man’s family and friends and all those affected by this tragic event.”
