POLICE have named a pedestrian killed in a collision with a lorry on the A1(M) earlier this week.
Twenty-nine-year-old Kenneth Laidlaw was struck as the lorry was travelling northbound near to the Durham Services, at junction 61 of the dual carriageway, at Bowburn, near Durham, late on Monday night (October 21).
Mr Laidlaw, from Stanley, County Durham, suffered serious injuries and was confirmed dead at the scene.
The lorry driver, a 44-year-old man from Consett, County Durham, was said to have been shocked, but unhurt, as a result of the collision.
Police accident investigators are keen to speak to any witnesses who may have seen a man near the slip road, leading off the A1(M) near to the service area, or someone walking in the northbound carriageway in that vicinity, at about the time of the collision, at 11.45pm.
