Woman dies after M32 incident

A WOMAN has died after being found with head injuries on a slip road onto the M32 at the Eastville flyover.

Avon and Somerset police say the woman, who was in her 30s, had been a passenger in a green Toyota saloon car before the incident on the inbound slip road at junction 2 of the motorway, which happened at about 7.30am on May 19.

She was found outside the car on the slip road with a serious head injury, and was taken to hospital but it was announced two days later that she had died of her injuries.

Avon and Somerset police are investigating the circumstances surrounding an incident and how the woman came to sustain her injuries.

A spokesperson said that the woman is known to have exited the car on the slip road and that no other vehicles were involved.

Officers are appealing for any witnesses to the incident or anyone with dashcam footage of a green Toyota saloon travelling on either Muller Road, Stapleton Road, Glenfrome Road or the M32 between 6am and 7.30am on the day of the incident to contact them.

The spokesperson said that the family of the woman, who had not been named as the voice went to press, had been informed and were receiving support from specially trained officers.

A man aged 56 who was arrested in connection with the incident has been released under investigation.

He has been charged with a separate offence of breaching a harassment order and appeared before Bristol Magistrates Court on May 21.

Anyone with information should call the police on 101 and quote the incident reference number 5221 109 316.
