Road victim Ryan Adamson

Police probing the death of a Nantwich man who was struck by a vehicle which failed to stop, have released more details about the investigation.

Officers are using CCTV to identify vehicles in the High Wycombe area at the time of Ryan Adamson’s death.

Liverpool fan Ryan (pictured), 25, who was in Buckinghamshire on a work placement, died after he had been struck by a vehicle.

Detectives believe before the collision there had been an altercation at a property nearby.

Ryan was then found lying in the road, where members of the public stopped to help him.

A car was flagged down, which struck Ryan and failed to stop at the scene.

Preliminary postmortem results suggest his death was caused by injuries suffered from the impact with the car.

Det Chief Insp Gill Wootton, leading the inquiry, said: “Although the circumstances leading up to Ryan’s death remain under investigation, our focus is on identifying the car and the driver involved.

“Once again, we make a direct appeal to the driver, or anyone who may have information about the car or the driver, to come forward as a matter of urgency.”

Sgt Peter Jell, of the Road Death Investigation Team, said: “Officers have been reviewing CCTV footage near the scene of the crash and we have identified a number of vehicles which passed this camera shortly after the time of the crash.

“While we are working hard to further identify these vehicles we would ask anyone who drove through Cockpit Road or the Missenden Road at Great Kingshill after 10.30pm on Thursday 15 March to contact us.”

Police were called at about 10.45pm last Thursday (March 15) after reports that a man had been struck by a vehicle that failed to stop at the scene.

It was travelling from the direction of Little Kingshill and after the collision left in the direction of Cockpit Road, turning left in Cryers Hill Road. Officers believe it sustained front end nearside damage.
