Tragedy as pensioner dies in collision with HGV in Corsham
An 89-year-old man has died after being hit by a lorry in Corsham.
Tommy Ford, who lived in Cresswells, in the town, was involved in a collision with an HGV at around 5.10pm on Monday. He was crossing Valley Road, close to the junction with Spackman Lane, when the incident occurred. Police closed the road for around five hours while they carried out an investigation into the cause of the crash. Naval veteran Mr Ford was involved with the Royal British Legion, and a keen member of Corsham Bowls Club.
He leaves a wife Bridget and a daughter Lynn, who lives in Gloucestershire with her husband Rod. The lorry driver has not been arrested and Wiltshire police have appealed for witnesses to contact the serious collision investigation team on 101.
