AN ELDERLY person has died following the crash which led to serious traffic around Haverfordwest today (May 23).

The A4076 Freemens Way was blocked, with queueing traffic due to accident at the roundabout, near to the A487 Merlins Hill at approximately 11am this morning (May 23).

The road at the roundabout has now re-opened with a lane restriction, meaning traffic is single file in places.

A spokeswoman for the Dyfed-Powys Police said: "We can confirm the serious collision at the Merlin’s Bridge Roundabout, Haverfordwest, reported at 11.30am today (May 23), was fatal.

"Sadly, an elderly person has died. Their next of kin has not yet been identified and no further information will be released at this time." 

The road between the Horse Fair roundabout at the top of Merlin’s Hill and the Merlin’s Bridge roundabout remains closed.

The Serious Collision Unit is investigating in the area and urges anyone with information to contact 101.
