Police searching for witness after collision leaves man in hospital

Have your say

Police investigating a collision which involved a Land Rover colliding with a man in his 50s are looking for a witness who they believe may have seen the incident.

A collision occurred on Coaley Lane, Wentworth, Rotherham, when a green Land Rover Defender collided with a 56-year-old man close to the junction with Smithey Bridge Lane.

The incident happened on February 6, and the man is still in hospital, where his condition has been described as ‘serious but stable’.

Police are now keen to trace a man with grey hair, believed to be in his 60s, who was driving a small blue hatchback, who they believe may have been travelling on the road both prior to and after the collision and could have seen the incident.

That man - and anyone else who may have information about the collision - is asked to call South Yorkshire Police in 101 quoting incident number 516 of February 2015.
