Appeal following collision between pedestrian and car on M65

Tuesday, April 16, 2019

We are appealing for information following a collision between a pedestrian and a car on the M65 close to Nelson.

We were called at around 10.30pm yesterday (Monday) to reports a woman had been involved in a collision with a Vauxhall Corsa on the exit slip road at junction 12 on the westbound carriageway.

The woman, aged in her 30s, was taken to Royal Preston Hospital for treatment for several broken bones.

We are now appealing for information and would like to speak to anybody who witnessed the collision. In particular we would like to trace the motorists who stopped to help at the scene but left prior to police arrival.

Sgt Michael Higginson, of the Lancashire Police TacOps Unit, said: “We are working hard to piece together exactly what happened and would like to hear from anybody with information about the incident, or who witnessed all or part of the collision.

“We would also very much like to make contact with the motorists who stopped at the scene but left before we could get their details.

“If you have any information that could help with our enquiries we would ask you to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”

Anybody with information is asked to contact us on 101, quoting log number 1628 of April 15th.
