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.
