POLICE are appealing for the driver of a red and yellow low loader to come forward who may be a vital witness to a fatal accident along the A4538 near Pinvin on Monday.

Sixty-year-old Anthony Foxall of Wheathill, Bridgnorth was killed when his red Rover 2000 was in a collision with a white Ford Transit van at about 1.30pm between Pinvin crossroads and the Peopleton junction.

The driver and passenger of the van, belonging to The Vale Group in Evesham, escaped uninjured but Mr Foxall was fatally wounded and died at the scene.

The low loader is believed to have been travelling in front of Mr Foxall's car towards Worcester when the accident happened.

Investigating officer, PC Vaughan Innes said: "He may have seen the accident but not realised how serious it was.

"It is most important that we speak to him and anyone else who saw what happened."

Managing director of The Vale Group, Vernon Powell said: "The accident was a great shock to us.

"My men are both off work. They are very upset and are still suffering from shock. They were both coming back from fitting a kitchen in Droitwich when the accident occurred."

Pershore fire fighters attended the crash scene but no-one was trapped.

Police closed the road until about 6pm to allow traffic investigators to fully assess the scene.

An inquest into the cause of Mr Foxall's death was due to be opened and adjourned today.

Witnesses to the accident are urged to contact PC Innes who is attached to the traffic unit in Pershore, on 01426 913005.
