Call for witnesses following collision in Henleaze

January 25 2019

AN APPEAL for witnesses has been launched following a serious road traffic collision in Henleaze.

The incident happened on Monday January 21 at about 4pm in Cardigan Road near to its junction with Henleaze Road, when a car was in collision with three pedestrians. 

The vehicle was a Volkswagen Caddy and was parking near to the Co-op when it mounted the pavement and was in collision with the pedestrians. 

The road was closed in both directions following the accident, and three people – two women and a man – were taken to Southmead Hospital. 

A man in his 70s and a woman in her 60s suffered minor injuries after becoming trapped between a car and a clothes recycling bin, and another woman suffered serious chest and hip injuries, and these may potentially be life changing although she is in a stable condition.

Commenting on the incident, a spokesman for South Western Ambulance Service said: "We were called at 3.52pm with reports of a serious road traffic incident on Cardigan Road, Henleaze.

"We sent multiple resources to attend the incident, including two critical care teams and a hazardous area response team. Two patients were transported by land ambulance to hospital for treatment."

Avon and Somerset Police like to hear from anyone who was in the area and witnessed the incident, and in particular from anyone who may have dash cam coverage of the incident. 

If you are able to help, please contact the police by calling 101 and quoting reference 5219014777 .
