Police have launched an appeal for more information after a man was killed on a road in Cambridgeshire after being hit by a horsebox.

Leslie Robinson, 51, of no fixed address, was walking along the A428 at Croxton, near St Neots on Tuesday (18 February) when he was involved in a collision with a Ford Cargo horsebox at about 6.10pm.

The victim was taken to Addenbrookes Hospital suffering from serious head injuries but died early on Wednesday morning.

Neither the horse travelling in the horsebox or the driver, a 46-year-old woman from Great Gransden were hurt in the accident.

The accident shut the road for more than four hours while crash investigators searched the scene for clues.

PC Andy Hall, who is investigating the crash, said: “I would appeal to anyone who saw the collision to come forward. We are also looking for anyone who saw a man walking towards St Neots along the A248 just prior to the collision.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC Hall (tel: 01480 422 585).
