A MAN killed in a fatal crash on a Herefordshire main road has been named.

The A44 was closed for much of the day on Saturday (May 18), after a crash involving a red Renault Clio in the early hours of the morning.

Emergency crews were called to the scene at Docklow, between Leominster and Bromyard, at around 12.40am that morning, a police spokesperson said at the time. 

Firefighters from Leominster and Bromyard fire stations and paramedics were also called to the scene.

But despite the best efforts of emergency crews, the Renault driver, who was 26 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene.

In a statement released today, West Mercia Police said the man has been named by his family as Jake Campbell.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Police previously asked anyone who witnessed the collision or has dash cam footage from around the time it happened to email police constable Mansfield: anthony.mansfield@westmercia.police.uk
