Police are appealing for witnesses and information following a serious road traffic collision in Stevenage on yesterday afternoon (Sunday May 15).

The incident occurred at around 4.20pm when a silver Ford Focus and a blue Ford Fiesta collided in Lytton Way, at the junction with Six Hills Way.

It is believed the Fiesta then crossed the roundabout, travelled over the central reservation into the dual carriage way and subsequently collided with a tree.

The male driver of the Ford Fiesta, a 67 year old man from Hatfield, was taken to the Lister Hospital with life threatening injuries. He remains in hospital in a critical condition. The passenger, a 63 year old woman from Hatfield, was also taken to Addenbrookes Hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the Ford Focus was uninjured.

PC Samantha Sparkes from the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit is investigating the collision. She said: “This is a busy stretch of road in the town centre and I am appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time and saw the collision to contact police at the earliest opportunity via the non-emergency number, 0845 3300 222.”
