Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses and dashcam footage following a fatal collision in Ellesmere Port.
At around 6.20pm on Saturday 31 December 2022, officers were called to a collision on the A41, Chester Road in Little Sutton.
Pedestrian, 55-year-old Sean Coffey, was involved in a collision with two cars, a black BMW X5 and a grey Land Rover Discovery, and sadly died.
The incident occurred in the road near to the junction of Smithy Lane.
Enquiries in relation to the collision are ongoing and officers are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or may have dashcam footage of the incident to come forward.
Sgt Claire Bailey said:
“The drivers involved have been very helpful, but so we can conduct a thorough investigation, we really need more witnesses to come forward. At the time of the collision it was very busy with pedestrians and motorists who are likely to have witnessed the collision and events running up to it.
“We are particularly interested in speaking with a female who was very close to the collision when it occurred, she went into the Nice Kebab and Pizza House on Chester Road to call for help. We believe that she would be able to assist us in our investigation.
“I’d urge anyone who witnessed the collision or has dashcam footage that will help us establish the circumstances to contact us for the sake of Sean’s devastated family.”
Anyone with any information is urged to call 101 quoting IML1446529 or visit here.
