Body Found On Dual Carriageway In Surrey Is Driven Over By Motorists
A dead body discovered on a dual carriageway in Surrey was driven over by several drivers before it was reported to the police, it has emerged.
Motorists driving on the busy A3 in Ripley most likely did not realise their mistake in the dark and the drizzle on Thursday night.
The body was reported at 7.35pm on 1 December by motorists travelling on the northbound carriageway. The road was shut between Burnt Common and Ripley for an investigation to take place. Police are appealing for witnesses.
A police spokesman said "Officers were called to the Ripley junction of the motorway following reports from members of the public of a body on the carriageway just south of the BP service station.
"When the body was on the carriageway it was struck by a number of vehicles but it is likely the motorists did not realise what happened and did not stop at the scene."
