Seriously hurt motorist in appeal after smash
A MOTORIST seriously injured in a crash in Marton is appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Wesley Bennett, 29, shattered his hip and broke his ankle in the head-on collision between two cars on Congleton Road on March 14.
The mechanic was helped from his VW Polo by a group of men, believed to be off-duty army medics, before being taken by air ambulance to Wythenshawe Hospital.
Wesley has already had one operation on his leg and hip, and emergency treatment for newly- discovered gall bladder damage, and faces a long road to recovery.
His friend Sam Valentine, 27, who was a passenger in the VW Polo, suffered a broken sternum and a deep cut to his leg.
The 52-year-old male driver of the other car, a Hyundai Coupe, was also injured.
Speaking from his hospital bed, Wesley said police were still looking for witnesses. He said: “I’m still in hospital at the moment. I have had more injuries from the crash come to light. My gall bladder was damaged and became infected. That was life threatening and very painful. Despite the appeal we are struggling to find any witnesses.”
Police are appealing for information about the crash to call 101 quoting incident number 535 of 14/3/2016.
