A55 tragedy 'not suicide'

A man was struck by a lorry and a car as he walked along the A55 following an earlier row with his partner, an inquest has heard.

A coroner's court in Llandudno recorded an open verdict in the death of Donald Gwilliams, 33, of Rhos-on-Sea.

Mr Gwilliams died at Abergele after being struck by a lorry on the busy main road in the early hours of the morning and his body was later struck by a car.

But coroner John Hughes discounted the possibility of suicide.

Arm injury

The incident occurred last May when the victim was walking home after he had received treatment at Glan Clwyd Hospital for cuts to his arm.

The injuries were caused during a row with his partner, when Mr Gwilliams put his arm through a window.

Mr Hughes told the hearing that Mr Gwilliams had made some "bizarre remarks" at the casualty department at the hospital.

But he believed this had been merely idle talk about his domestic situation rather than an indication of any inclination to end his life.
