Police reveal A50 bridge fall victim was not hit by car

POLICE have now revealed a woman who fell to her death off a bridge over the A50 at Meir earlier this week was not hit by a car.

Initial police investigations in Monday night’s incident suggested the woman, 34, from Stoke-on-Trent, died after being struck by a vehicle.

A police spokesman said further inquiries had ruled this out.

The woman, who was pronounced dead at the scene, is expected to be formally identified today.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is urged to contact Staffordshire Police on 101.
