Detectives from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are appealing for dashcam footage following a collision near Old Dalby last night (Monday 10 January).
At around 10.20pm, a report was received that a blue Peugeot 306 had left the road on the B676 Six Hills Lane, close to the junction with Lawn Lane, between Old Dalby and Grimston.
The driver – a man in his 30s – was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham to be treated for injuries that are both life-threatening and life-changing.
Following early enquiries, a 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving while unfit through drink or drugs. He has today (Wednesday) been released under investigation.
Detective Sergeant Paul Hawkins, from the SCIU, said: “I would like to speak to any motorists who were in the area and either saw or captured the blue Peugeot on a dashcam. The car may have been travelling with a red Vauxhall Corsa and I am asking anyone who saw either vehicle to get in touch.
“Likewise, I’d like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision but has not yet contacted police. Any information you have, no matter how insignificant you think it may be, could help us establish what happened.”
You can call police on 101 if you can help.
