Walkers killed in Herefordshire A44 motorcycle crash named

INQUESTS have been opened into the deaths of two people killed on the A44 in Herefordshire.

The A44 was closed for several hours at Newton Lane in Floodgates, near Kington, after the crash just before 11am on September 7.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service said two ambulances, a paramedic officer, a BASICS doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford were sent to the scene.

A spokesman said the two pedestrians were found in critical conditions and died at the scene.

“Ambulance staff immediately began administering advanced life support,” he said.


“However, despite their best efforts it sadly became apparent nothing could be done to save either patient and they were confirmed dead at the scene.”

They have now been named as 57-year-old Alison Margaret Morris and 70-year-old Paul Haydn Morris.

A motorcyclist was also airlifted to hospital.

“The motorcyclist, a man, was treated for potentially serious injuries before being airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham,” the spokesperson said.
