ACCIDENT Victim named; NORTH TODAY.

A PEDESTRIAN who died in a crash that closed the A1(M) in County Durham on Monday night has been named as Mark Bambrick.

The 36-year-old, from Otterburn Terrace in Jesmond, was stuck by a heavy goods vehicle as he ran across the carriageway near to the Chester-le-Street junction.

The Highways Agency had been called to reports of a broken down vehicle on the hard shoulder of the road's south-bound side.

On arrival officers saw a male pedestrian appear from the side of the road and run across the carriageway, the central reservation and the north-bound carriageway. Several other motorists reported seeing a pedestrian running on the hard shoulder and main carriageway south-bound.

Mr Bambrick was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the HGV was treated for shock.
