Main article content
We are continuing to appeal for witnesses after a woman suffered serious injuries following a road traffic collision in St Helens on Friday morning, 9 September.
At around 10.55am emergency services were called to a report of a collision on Moss Bank Road in St Helens involving a black Golf Volkswagen and a blue Range Rover.
A woman in her 70s was safely removed from one of vehicles and was taken to hospital with several fractures and other serious injuries.
A man aged 31 from St Helens who was the driver of the Blue Range Rover was later arrested on suspicion of drug driving and causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
He was taken to hospital with several injuries and has since been released under investigation.
An investigation is underway and officers would like to speak to anyone who was at the scene on Friday morning and saw the collision.
Sergeant Greg Gillespie said: “Although an arrest was made shortly after the collision, we are still appealing for anyone to come forward who saw this incident.
“Witness enquiries shows there were several vehicles in and around the collision and we believe that the drivers of these cars could have vital information that may help us understand the circumstances of this collision which left a woman with severe injuries.
“We are also keen to speak with a male who may have been walking on Birchley Road at the time of the collision. He was described as a white male, with a bald or balding head and a cut to his left leg. We would like this male to contact us as soon as possible to discuss what he may have saw, as he may have crucial evidence that could assist our enquiries.
“If you were on Moss Bank Road at the time of the incident and saw the collision or have any CCTV and dash camera footage which may assist the investigation please contact police.”
