Appeal following serious collision in Bispham

Police are appealing for witnesses and footage following a serious collision in Bispham.

Officers were called to Bibby’s Road at the junction with Bispham Road at 11.49am yesterday (Friday 21st June) following reports a Ford Transit van had collided with a pedestrian and the pedestrian had become trapped.

The pedestrian – a local man in his 80s – was taken to hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

The driver of the van will be spoken to in due course.

Sgt Paul McCurrie, of our Specialist Operations Team, said: “This collision has left a man with some extremely serious injuries and my thoughts are with him and his loved ones at this time.

“Work is ongoing to establish the full circumstances which led to the collision and I would ask any witnesses or anyone with CCTV, dashcam or mobile phone footage which could assist our investigation to contact the police as soon as possible.”
