A pensioner from Ingol has died nearly three months after being involved in a crash.Advertisement
Michael Hughes, 82, was taken to hospital with spinal injuries after the collision in Tag Lane in July.
Preston Police say Mr Hughes passed away on Monday 17 October.
The crash between a Nissan Micra and a Volkswagen van at 10am on Saturday 23 July shut the main road through Ingol for a number of hours, at the junction with Oaktree Avenue.
The van driver, a 34-year-old man, suffered whiplash as a result of the crash.
Police are now appealing for witnesses to the incident.
Sergeant Nigel Ralphson of the Road Policing Unit said: “These are tragic circumstances and my thoughts are with Mr Hughes’ family and friends at this difficult time.
“While we initially appealed for information in July, no witnesses have as yet come forward.
“I’d particularly like to speak to the occupants of the parked car the Micra overtook immediately before the collision and the occupants of a green Transit-style work van which was the first vehicle to pass the scene after the collision. It was travelling generally north towards Tanterton Hall Road.”
Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting log 548 of July 23.
