Police are appealing for witnesses after a 90-year-old pedestrian died after being involved in a collision with a car in Clitheroe.

The incident took place around 11-35 am last Thursday, January 2nd, when a Toyota Corolla travelling towards the town centre collided with the pensioner as he crossed Railway View Avenue from Church Walk.

The pedestrian, who has been named as Mr Stuart Beal from Clitheroe, was knocked to the ground and sustained a cut to his head.

He was taken to Blackburn Royal Hospital where his injuries were initially believed to be minor.

Mr Beal was kept in overnight and discharged on Friday January 3rd, but sadly his condition worsened over the following days and he was pronounced dead at 3-30 am at his home address on Monday January 6th.

Sgt Finn Quainton, from the Force Road Policing unit, said: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with Mr Beal’s family.

“The Toyota Corolla had just emerged from Clitheroe Health Centre car park when the collision took place. An investigation is under way, but I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this collision or with any information that could assist with our investigation to contact Lancashire Police on 101.”
