Appeal Following Fatal Road Accident in Neston

Published: 25th September 2018 12:02

Officers from Cheshire Police are appealing for information from the public following a fatal collision near Neston.

Shortly after 10pm on Monday 24 September officers were called to reports of a collision between a silver Ford Focus and a red Ford Fiesta, at the junction of the A540, Chester High Road, and Damhead Lane.

Sadly the driver of the Fiesta, a 48-year-old woman from Bromborough, died at the scene. Her next of kin have been informed and they are being supported by specialist family liaison officers.

The driver of the Focus, an 88-year-old man from Neston, was also injured; he was taken to Aintree Hospital where he is currently in a stable condition.

Enquiries in relation to this incident are ongoing and officers are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or anyone who believes they have any dashcam footage of the incident itself or footage of the vehicles in the moments leading up to the incident.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Cheshire Police on 101 quoting IML 193790 or visit https://cheshire.police.uk/contact/general-enquiries.

To submit dashcam footage to police go online at www.cheshire.police.uk/advice-and-support/roads-and-vehicle-safety/submit-dashcam-footage .

This is never a nice thing to read but i have to say, driving at 88. How is this legal?

Anyone who holds a current driving licence and complies with all relevant DVLA requirements is entitled to drive. To say that someone should not be driving just because of their age is totally discriminatory and any intelligent person would not make such an ill informed comment. In our ageing society we should welcome older drivers maintaining their independent mobility for as long as they are safe to do so on our roads. Just as advancing age is no barrier to being a good driver, being a younger driver is no guarantee of being a safer driver. In fact young drivers are grossly over represented in the annual road accident statistics and their high risk is reflected in their sky high car insurance premiums.

I would quite happily have been conveyed strapped to the front bumper of any car driven by my grandad, who in his 90’s decided other drivers were too much of a risk and decided to hang up his licence. Most of my scares on the road are trade vans and Corsas driven by those who cannot see past the screen of their phone.

Notwithstanding I suggest we leave this one – the facts are not known to us.

No problem. I completely disagree but yes, not the time or place for a debate.
