Sergeant Cat Gibbons, Road Policing Unit, said: “We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or saw either vehicle being driven prior to the crash, who has not already given details to the Police, to come forward.
“You may have driven past shortly before it happened and have dash-cam footage and therefore we would also ask you to think back, where were you – check your footage. You may have information that can help us in our enquiries.”
Anyone with information has been urged to contact Police via 101, quoting incident number 1265 of Saturday August 11.
