Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Father Denies Stabbing Toddler, Two, In The Neck -

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses af­ter a van driver was in­jured in an ap­par­ent road rage row.

The man was in­volved in an ‘al­ter­ca­tion’ with a Jaguar driver on the hard shoul­der of the We­ston Point Ex­press­way, in Runcorn – just af­ter the M56 exit.

De­tec­tives now want to speak to any­one who saw the road­side clash – said to have left the van driver ‘shaken up’.

The two drivers had both ex­ited the M56 and stopped on the hard shoul­der of the Ex­press­way, near the slip road lead­ing to­ward Rock­sav­age power plant.

The vic­tim, a 52-year-old man from Runcorn who had been driv­ing a sil­ver Vaux­hall Vi­varo Combi van, suf­fered a mi­nor in­jury and went to hos­pi­tal fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent.

Cheshire po­lice now want to speak to the driver of the sec­ond ve­hi­cle, a vin­tage black Jaguar, as part of their en­quiries.

The driver is de­scribed as a white man in his late 20s or early 30s who was wear­ing a base­ball cap and a grey top.

A woman, who po­lice would also like to speak to, was in the car with him.

Of­fi­cers would also like to hear from any­one who wit­nessed the in­ci­dent or be­lieves they may have dash­cam footage of it. It took place at 1.25pm last Fri­day, Septem­ber 21.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Dan Wil­liams said: “The in­ci­dent has left the driver of the van ex­tremely shaken up. En­quiries are on­go­ing and we are keen to speak to any­one who may be able to help us es­tab­lish ex­actly what hap­pened.”
