A fresh appeal has been made over the hit-and-run death of South Cerney man Max Hartshorne
TWO months on from the crash which killed South Cerney man Max Hartshorne, a fresh appeal has been made for witnesses.
Max, 24, died after he was involved with a collision at around 12.30am on Sunday August 19 on the B4696, Spine Road East near the crossroads of Broadway Lane and Wickwater Lane.
Although a 50-year-old man from Malmesbury was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and released on police bail, this has since been cancelled while the investigation is ongoing.
A Gloucestershire police spokesman confirmed he is no longer under arrest.
Sergeant Dave Kania from Gloucestershire police’s Roads Policing Unit has appealed to anyone who was driving on the road around the time of the crash to contact him.
“Over the last couple of months we have been carrying out a thorough investigation into the incident, which so sadly claimed Max’s life,” he said.
“We’ve spoken to several witnesses and drivers that were in the area around the time of the collision but we’re still eager to hear from anyone that was driving on the road that night that may be able to help us establish the exact sequence of events that lead to this tragic incident.
“If you have any information at all, no matter how small it may seem, please get in touch with us by calling 101 and quoting incident number 27 of August 19.”
Wiltshire police are also appealing for information from Wiltshire residents.
