A man was killed last night following a road accident with a police vehicle in the centre of Moonville.
The driver of the car, a red VW Golf, was announced dead on arrival at the St. Monty’s Hospital, with the policeman, PC Steve Rodgers, being “treated from concussion and a fracture of the nose and left leg” a hospital spokesman said.
The Police car had collided into a monument at the junction of Scar Road in Moonville, and the other car crashed into a shop.
Josephine Rockwell, 31, was working at the Bluehound Pub at the time of the accident, witnessed the events:
“The driver of the [VW Golf] was slumped over the wheel…it looked as if he was really badly injured.”
A search was later carried out for a passenger of the Golf, and a rucksack found in the car was removed and now in the possession of the Drugs Squad.
