Police appeal for key witnesses after Vale Of Belvoir Collision

Detectives are investigating a serious collision in Redmile – in the Vale of Belvoir – and are asking for two key witnesses to come forward.


At around 1.20pm yesterday (Friday 2 June) emergency services were called to the junction of Belvoir Road and Long Lane following a report a blue Toyota Yaris collided with a grey Toyota Hilux.


The three occupants of the Yaris – all men in their 20s – were taken to hospital. One man, who was a passenger in the car, remains in a life-threatening condition. The injuries sustained by the other two occupants were not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing.


A 22-year-old man from Surrey has been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and remains in custody.

The driver of the Hilux was not injured during the collision.



Detective Sergeant Lisa Wood, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU), said: “I know that a couple – a man and a woman – stopped at the scene to help. The woman stated she was a military medic.


“However, they left prior to police arriving. I’m particularly keen to speak to them as they may have key information or footage that could help my investigation.


“I’m also appealing for anyone else who was in the area at the time the collision occurred to come forward. If you saw what happened, have footage or saw either vehicle prior to the collision occurring, then please get in touch.”
