Air Ambulance responds to a road traffic collision on Promenade Road
Photographs by

ON 2 May 2017, the Air Ambulance responded to a serious incident on the Promenade Road, on the entrance to Southport Pier.

Merseyside Police have told us that:- "Our Officers were called to a road traffic collision, at around 1:30pm, on 2 may 2017. A number of vehicles and Officers assisted at the incident which required the Promenade Road to be closed to traffic for a short time to allow the Air Ambulance to land and take off. We are told that the collision involved a Mercedes Sprinter Van, with 2 casualties, an elderly female along with an elderly male. Both we are told are in hospital in a stable condition."

NWAS said:- "NWAS attended a road traffic collision on the Pier Forecourt, Promenade, Southport, next to Silcock's Funland, with a number of units, a Rapid Response unit, an Ambulance and the North West Air Ambulance. A male in his 90's had sustained injuries to his head and hip and a female, in her 80's, to her head and back. Both of the casualties were taken by vehicle to hospital and not by Air Ambulance as reported in some of the press."

Merseyside Police have also commented that:- "If a road is closed to traffic, even if you cannot see why, do not try to drive down it. You will face prosecution in court that can lead to fine, penalty points on your licence and might lead to a disqualification from driving. They also want to remind drivers that under 'Section 35 of the Road Traffic Act 1988' it is an offence for the driver of a vehicle not to stop when required to do so by a Police Officer engaged in regulating traffic. This reminder follows on after a motorist declined to obey the temporary restriction in place at this incident."
