Appeal after fatal collision in Colne

Wednesday, June 2, 2021

We are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision in Colne. 

We were called at around 1.05pm yesterday (Tuesday, June 1) to reports of a collision on Regent Street between a van and a pedestrian.

Emergency services attended and sadly the pedestrian – a man aged in his 40s – was pronounced dead at the scene.

His next of kin have been made aware and are being supported by specially-trained officers.

Our thoughts are very much with them at this difficult time.

Sgt Marc Glass, of Lancashire Police's Tactical Operations, said: "These are tragic circumstances and my thoughts are with the man involved and his family at this sad and very difficult time.

"Enquiries are ongoing into the collision and anybody who saw it and has not yet spoken to police is asked to get in touch on 101, quoting log number 723 of June 1."
