Appeal following serious collision between van and pedestrian
Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses following a serious collision in East Staffordshire yesterday involving a pedestrian and a van.
At 6.38pm yesterday (Monday 2 October), we received a report of a collision on the northbound carriageway of the A38 in Shobnall.
A silver Vauxhall van was involved in a collision with a pedestrian.
We went to the scene alongside paramedics from West Midlands Ambulance Service and closed the road in both directions whilst emergency services worked at the scene.
The pedestrian, a man in his 50s, was taken to hospital by ambulance after suffering serious injuries. He remains in a critical but stable condition and is believed to have life-changing injuries at this time.
The driver of the van stayed at the scene and has been helping officers with their enquiries.
Officers re-opened the southbound carriageway to ease traffic flow shortly after and then re-opened the northbound road around 11.30pm.
We would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding following a significant period of disruption in the area last night.
Collision investigators are keen to speak with any witnesses, particularly those who might have dashcam footage of the area at the time.
Call 101, quoting incident 600 of 2 October, or message us using Live Chat on our website.
