3 June 2014, 09:22
Police are appealing for a woman to come forward as a potential witness after a man from Ipswich collapsed and died whilst working on a road in Newmarket.
They were called by the Ambulance service at around 10:30am on Tuesday 13 May, with a report that a man had collapsed on the B1063 in Lidgate, near to a section where road works were taking place.
The man, 37 year old Aidan Gallagher from Ipswich, who had been working on the road works was taken by land ambulance to Addenbrooke's Hospital but died on the way.
A post mortem examination was held on Tuesday 20 May, which found that Mr Gallagher had internal injuries consistent with an impact.
Officers have been carrying out enquiries to establish the circumstances of Mr Gallagher's death and have spoken to two men who were working on the road the same day. They have said that a woman, believed to be driving a car, spoke to them to make them aware that someone had collapsed on the road.
Police would like to trace this woman as she may be able to help police with their enquiries.
The woman stopped on the B1063 sometime between 10.15am and 10.30am on Tuesday 13 May.
As well as identifying the woman who stopped, officers are keen to speak to anyone who had been driving along the road at the time and may have witnessed the collision or who saw any vehicle with damage that may have been caused by a collision to get in contact.
Anyone with information should contact the Major Investigation Team on 101.
