Ap­peal re­newed over ‘se­ri­ous’ crash

Rossendale Free Press - - Obituaries -

PO­LICE have launched a re­newed ap­peal for wit­nesses af­ter a man was left hos­pi­talised with ‘se­ri­ous in­juries’ fol­low­ing a car col­li­sion.

A Vaux­hall As­tra van and a Vaux­hall In­signia were in­volved in the col­li­sion at the junc­tion of Schofield Road and Henry Street in Rawten­stall in the in­ci­dent on Tuesday, March 27.

The in­ci­dent was first re­ported in the Free Press on March 30.

Of­fi­cers said the As­tra ro­tated and col­lided with a wall and a nearby parked ve­hi­cle.

The driver of the As­tra, a man in his 30s, suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries and a child pas­sen­ger also re­ceived mi­nor in­juries.

Po­lice this week said the As­tra driver re­mains in hospi­tal in a ‘se­ri­ous, sta­ble con­di­tion’.

The driver of the In­signia was un­in­jured in the in­ci­dent, which hap­pened at around 5.30pm on March 27.

Sergeant Lee Har­ris, of Lan­cashire’s Road Polic­ing Unit, said: “We need to es­tab­lish ex­actly what hap­pened and would ap­peal to any­one who was in the area and saw the col­li­sion to help po­lice with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call po­lice on 101 quot­ing log num­ber 954 of March 27.
