The hunt is in for a specific witness after a driver died yesterday. 

Shortly after 1am yesterday morning (July 12) police were called to Thornwood Road in Epping.

There they found a vehicle that had crashed off the road.

The driver died at the scene.

Their next of kin have been contacted by police officers.

There was a road closure in place on High Road between The Plain and Woodside causing significant delays, but traffic is now flowing again.

Police believe the driver of a white Nissan Juke, which passed the collision shortly after it occurred, may be able to assist in their enquiries.

They have encouraged the driver or any occupants of the vehicle to contact an officer.

Police are appealing for anyone other driver who saw or heard anything, was driving in the area and has dash cam footage, or have any other information, to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101 quoting incident 93 of July 12
