Robert Kerry was waiting for a colleague to pick him up from the roadside when he was hit by the wheel, which had come off a tanker.

The 54-year-old died after the freak accident, which happened on the A27 in Arundel, West Sussex yesterday morning.

Then, when his father-in-law John Cordingly was told of the tragic news, he suffered a heart attack and died.

Police are appealing for information about the accident. Anyone with any information is being urged to contact Sergeant Stewart Goodwin at the road policing unit in Chichester, quoting Operation Bramfield, on 0845 6070 999.
