Appeal for witnesses following serious RTC on M62
Main article content
Officers from our Roads Policing Unit are appealing for witnesses following a serious RTC on the M62 citybound at Bowring Park this morning (Sunday, 25 July).
AT about 6.15am it was reported that a Mercedes e-Class had collided with the central reservation.
Three men had been seen running from the car towards the Rocket. When officers from the North West Motorway Patrol Group (NWMPG) and Merseyside Police arrived they found two injured women, both aged 21 from Doncaster, in the car. North West Ambulance Service and paramedics attended at the scene and the women were taken to hospital to be treated for their injuries.
Officers from Merseyside Police carried out a thorough search of the area and two injured men, aged 30 years from Birmingham and 21 years from Leicester, were located nearby. Both men were taken to hospital by ambulance and are being treated for their injuries. None of the injuries sustained are life threatening.
Officers are still searching for the third man from the car as it is believed he has suffered injuries, and the extent of those injuries is unknown. We would appeal to anyone who may have seen him to contact us.
Witness and CCTV enquiries are ongoing.
Roads Policing Sergeant Steve Smith, said: "We would like to speak to any drivers in the area who may have dashcam footage of the silver Mercedes, which was travelling along the M62 (citybound) when it collided with the central reservation between Bowring Park and the Rocket. Any footage or information could be vital in establishing what happened."
The motorway was closed city bound following the incident and one lane of the M62 heading out of the city was closed whilst debris was removed. All lanes have now been reopened.shortly/are now open
