Police Appeal witness

Were you in Roxton Road yesterday (Tuesday) at around 5pm? If so, you might be able to help Bedfordshire Police following a serious road traffic collision.

At approximately 5pm a grey Peugeot, leaving the car park of the Roxton Garden Centre, was involved in a collision with a grey Vauxhall Astra, which was travelling south from the Black Cat roundabout.

A man in his 60s and a man in his 90s both sustained serious injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening.

Additionally, a woman in her 30s sustained minor injuries.

PC Ben Gates, who is investigating this incident, said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed this road traffic collision or has any information that can help us understand the circumstances leading up to the incident.

“I would like to ask any motorists who were travelling in the area at the time to review their dashcam footage and check if any of the described vehicles were captured.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the police through the online reporting centre, or by calling 101 and quoting reference number 279 of 13 April.

Alternatively, you can contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
