Appeal following Colne collision

Sunday, March 19, 2017

We are appealing for witnesses following a collision in Colne which has ‎left a 45-year-old pedestrian with serious injuries.

The incident occurred at around 9.50pm yesterday (Friday) at the junction of Windy Bank and Norfolk Street, when a grey Peugeot 207 collided with a Mini Countryman as the Mini turned right out of a supermarket car park.  

The Mini hit the pavement and collided with the pedestrian.

The pedestrian, from Colne, suffered suspected fractures ‎to his foot, which are described as serious but not life-changing. He was taken to Royal Preston Hospital, where he remains.

Now we would like to speak to anyone who has information about the collision, or who witnessed ‎it and has not yet been spoken to by officers.

Sergeant Adam Dawson of the Roads Policing Unit said: "This collision has left a man with some serious injuries and we would now like to piece together exactly what occurred.

"We would urge anybody with information about the collision to contact us as soon as possible."

Anybody with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting log number 1433 of March 17th.
