Man Seriously Injured After Crash

Police are looking for motorists who were at the scene of a serious road collision on Thursday May 19.

It happened at Potsgrove, near Hockliffe, on the A4012 half a mile from the junction with Battlesden Avenue.

Motorists may remember being stuck in a traffic queue behind a slow moving tractor travelling towards Woburn. One of the cars in the queue, a silver Hyundai Getz, crossed to the opposite carriageway and as a result hit an oncoming white van.

The collision sent the Fiat Doblo van rolling over and the driver was thrown out, sustaining life-threatening injuries. The 44 year old Dunstable man is now at Addenbrookes Hospital being treated for head and internal injuries.

PC Terry Nesbitt is investigating the collision and would like to hear from any driver who was in the traffic queue on Thursday (around 4.10pm) and from the tractor driver who was at the head of the queue. It may be that they have information that can help with the investigation.

PC Nesbitt can be contacted at the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Collision Investigation Unit via 01234 841212.
