A man has died after he was in collision with a car on a busy dual carriageway.

The collision happened on the southbound A38 at the junction of the A5121 at Branston near Burton-on-Trent at around 1:40pm on Monday afternoon.

An ambulance arrived in 8 minutes and was backed up by a paramedic area support officer.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Unfortunately, when ambulance staff arrived it was immediately apparent that nothing could be done to save the pedestrian and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“An elderly man, who was the front seat passenger in the car involved, was treated at the scene for cuts to his hands and shock. He was subsequently taken to Burton Queens Hospital as a precaution. The driver, also a man, was uninjured.”
