Witness appeal after two pedestrians hit by car in Leyland

Thursday, May 20, 2021

We are appealing for witnesses following a collision between a car and two pedestrians in Leyland.
The incident occurred at around 3pm on Tuesday, May 18th at the junction of King Street and Towngate, when a BMW 2 Series collided with a man and woman, both aged in their 50s.
The woman suffered serious head injuries and was taken to hospital, where she remains in a stable condition. Thankfully the male pedestrian suffered minor injuries.
The road was closed for around four hours while collision investigators attended.
We would now like to hear from anybody who can help us piece together what occurred.

Sgt Phil Baxendale, of the Lancashire Police TacOps team, said: “We are working hard to establish exactly what happened yesterday and are appealing to anybody who witnessed the collision, or saw either the BMW or the pedestrians in the moments before it occurred, to get in touch with us.

“Equally we would like to hear from anybody who has dashcam footage or CCTV footage showing the incident.”

Anybody with information is asked to get in touch on 101, quoting log 1011 of May 18th.
