Elderly man remains in serious condition after scooter collision

Police are renewing their appeal for witnesses after an elderly man was knocked off his mobility scooter on Newark Road in Lincoln.

The 82-year-old man is in a serious condition at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham as a result of the collision on Friday, October 17.

After their previous appeal officers have eliminated a small red car. They are now interested in hearing from the person driving a white car, or anyone who may have seen a white car, as the driver may be a crucial witness.

The elderly man was riding a mobility scooter in the cycle lane on Newark Road, heading into Lincoln, at around 11.50 on Friday morning.

He was struck from behind by a vehicle, which stopped briefly before leaving the scene.

The man was taken to Lincoln County Hospital and was then transferred to Nottingham.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is urged to leave a message on the Collision Hot Line on 01522 558855 for P.C James Bennett quoting incident number 194 of 17th October 2014.
