Market Drayton man arrested after fatal hit and run at pedestrian crossing

A 29-year-old from Shropshire has been arrested after a young man died in a hit and run crash.

Cheshire Constabulary have made an arrest as part of investigations into the crash in Crewe, Cheshire, last Friday.

They have now arrested a 29-year-old man from Market Drayton.

At approximately 5.20pm on Friday, November 5, Joshua Spender, who was 23 years old, was crossing the pedestrian crossing outside McDonald's in Macon Way when a white van collided with him and failed to stop at the scene.

The suspect was arrested two days later on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, causing death while disqualified, failing to stop, driving without insurance and obstructing a police constable.

Sergeant Simon Degg, from Cheshire Constabulary, said: “I’d like to thank the public, including in Crewe and Market Drayton, and the media, for their assistance in the investigation.

"The number of concerned people who contacted us with information was heartening to see for us and for the family.”

Enquiries are continuing.
