Bromley man Karlos Josiah dies in M4 motorway collision

This Is Local London: Karlos Josiah. Karlos Josiah.

TRIBUTES have poured in for a Bromley man who died on the M4 motorway in Berkshire.

Karlos Josiah, 23, was found off the carriageway at 1:05pm yesterday between junction 6 for Slough and junction 5 for Datchet.

Mr Josiah, who was driving a black Renault Clio at the time, was confirmed dead at the scene of the collision and was the only vehicle involved in the crash.

Bromley Police say Mr Josiah was reported missing to them on Sunday evening, after he failed to arrive in Bromley after leaving Newbury in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Taking to Facebook, one friend wrote: “Love you man, rest in perfect peace. I'm proud to have spent a lot of time with you back in and out of school and will reminisce on those memories together once I see you upstairs. Save me a good spot bro x.”

Another wrote: “Missing yu all ready cuz my heart is being ripped in two sleep in paradise and have a little rave up there love yu loads...gone but always in our hearts and never forgotten xxx.”

Writing on Twitter, one relative wrote: “Rip karl josiah i know u will b with d angels soon... 23 is too young.”

Investigating officer Sergeant Michael Bettington, of the Thames Valley Police joint roads policing unit, is appealing for witnesses to come forward.

He is keen to hear from anyone who travelled along the M4 between Friday (January 18) and Wednesday (January 23) who may have seen the black Clio leave the motorway.
