At 8.35am, a silver Nissan Almera travelling along Beeston Road in the direction of Old Lane was in collision with a 29-year-old male pedestrian. The injured man was taken to Leeds General Infirmary where she is being treated for a serious head injury.

The road was closed for some time this morning with traffic diverted around local side streets.

PC Chris Worsnop, of Eastern Safer Roads and Neighbourhood Support Team, said:

“We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the Beeston Road area this morning who has seen this collision. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Safer Roads and Neighbourhood Support Team on 101.”

 

This post has been corrected (2 April). We originally reported that the pedestrian was female in line with Police’s press statement.

  1. My cousin (who an A &amp E nurse) and I assisted with the injured MAN.

    He slipped on the road whilst trying to return to the pavement after noticing car coming in his direction.

    The driver was very upset as he could not stop the accident from happening.

    There were lots of witnesses present unsure why more information is required.

    1. Hi Vicky,
      He is my cousin who met with an accident yesterday. Could you please tell us how did it happen and what exactly happen?
