“I am appealing to anyone who was driving on the A605 around the time of the collision to contact us if they remember seeing a man walking along the road.
“I would also appeal directly to the man to get in touch with us to let us know he is okay. We are concerned that he may be seriously injured and will need urgent medical assistance.”
The road has been closed in both directions between Haddon services and Elton and is expected to remain closed for some time.
