Tuesday, August 31, 2021

We are appealing for information following a fail-to-stop collision in Blackpool which left a teenage girl with a broken ankle.

The incident occurred at around 10.30pm on August 21st on Queen’s Promenade, close to the junction of Red Bank Road.

A black vehicle, possibly a Mercedes, was travelling in the direction of Cleveleys when it collided with a 16-year-old girl as she was crossing the road.

The vehicle made off from the scene in the direction of Cleveleys.

The girl was taken to hospital where it was confirmed she had suffered a serious break to her ankle, which required surgery.

We would now ask anybody who witnessed any part of the incident, or who has dashcam or security footage showing either the collision or the vehicle, to get in touch.

PC Mark Rees, of Fleetwood Police, said: “This was a nasty collision which left a teenager with serious injuries, and enquiries are ongoing to establish exactly what occurred and who was driving the car.

“An investigation has been underway since the incident but we are at a point where we need to ask the public for help. Did you see all or part of this incident? Or were you in the area at around the same time and have CCTV or dashcam footage? If you do, please get in touch straight away.

“We would also appeal to the driver, if he or she sees this appeal, to do the right thing and contact us.”

Anybody with information should call 101, quoting log 1647 of August 21st.
