Officers investigating a fatal collision on the guided busway between Dunstable and Luton are appealing for information.
At around 12.30am this morning (Thursday) a bus was travelling eastbound on the busway towards Luton, and was adjacent to Hatters Way when it was involved in a collision with a pedestrian.
Emergency services attended, however the pedestrian - a man in his 40s - sadly died shortly after. His next of kin has been informed and is being supported by specialist officers.
Officers are working to establish the circumstances and are asking the public for any information around the moments leading up to the incident.
Detective Constable Ben Amondsen from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our sincere sympathies are with the friends and family of the man who died.
“We are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen anything prior to the collision, particularly any of the passengers who were on the bus as they had all left prior to police arriving.
“We are currently following lines of enquiry but need the public’s help to determine the events leading up to this tragic incident.”
