Appeal for motorists who stopped to come forward – Fatal RTC, Brynglas Tunnels, M4 – Friday 15th March

Gwent Police is appealing for information and witnesses following the fatal collision that occurred on the M4 eastbound at the entrance of the Brynglas Tunnels at approximately 3am this morning, Friday 15th March.

The collision involved one vehicle, a dark grey Peugeot 308 saloon, which collided with a wall and also an electrical sub-station.

The driver, a 67 year old man from the Cardiff area, was recovered from the vehicle but was pronounced dead at the scene.

CCTV shows a number of motorists stopping at the side of the vehicle immediately after the collision, officers are particularly interested in speaking to these people. They include heavy goods vehicle drivers, and one man who actually got out of the passenger side of a passing vehicle and walked over to have a look inside.

Following the collision the Eastbound M4 remained closed from Junction 26, with diversions in place to allow for vehicle recovery and a structural assessment of the sub-station and the tunnel. The work has now been completed and the Eastbound M4 has reopened.

Witnesses are asked to contact Gwent Police’s Collision Investigation Unit on 01633 642404.
