Serious collision in Caerwys: Appeal

Police are appealing for witnesses after an elderly man was seriously injured following a collision on the A55 in Flintshire last week.

At 10:30am on Friday, February 14th officers were called to a report of a two-vehicle collision on the A55 eastbound just prior to the Caerwys off-slip whereby a car, being driven by the man, collided with a HGV which was parked in the layby.

The driver, aged in his 70’s, was airlifted by the Air Ambulance to hospital in Stoke, where he remains with serious injuries.

Inspector Nicky Collins of the Roads Policing Unit is appealing for any witnesses to come forward. She said: “Anybody who may have seen the collision, or who may have seen the grey coloured Suzuki Jimny just prior to the collision is urged to contact us as soon as possible.”

Anybody with information is asked to contact officers at the Roads Policing Unit on 101 or via the live webchat quoting reference number Y021455.
