Head injury news

Driver (17) suffers head injury in five-victim car crash

The 17-year-old male driver of a Vauxhall Corsa and two of his back seat passengers, a boy aged 16 and a girl of 17, suffered serious head injury when the car left the northbound carriageway of the A56 at Accrington, Lancashire, and ended up on its roof.

Two other 16-year-old youths, who were also passengers, suffered less serious injuries and left the Royal Blackburn Hospital after treatment.

Police said the car overturned and travelled 250m on its roof. No other vehicle was involved in the car crash which occurred at 11.30pm, although a second black Corsa was said to have been travelling along the road at the same time.

Sgt Pete Sculpher, who is leading a Lancashire Police investigation into the road traffic accident, said he would like to speak to any witnesses who might have seen one or both of the Corsas being driven along the Accrington bypass.

When inquiries are complete, some or all of the victims of the car crash may seek compensation for their personal injury through a no win no fee solicitor.
