Did you see Ashill Crash?
Another Avon & Somerset Police special – appealing for witnesses four days after a collision took place. All we can do is shrug, wonder what happened to the glorious world of instant communication and connectivity and ask for your help.
The incident they would like to hear from you about was a road traffic collision near Ilminster on the A358 at Ashill on 10th February at about 3.45pm. Read this carefully, it is a little complicated, at least it took us a few minutes to unravel what happened according to the official account:
Police believe that a silver coloured Ford Kuga was waiting to turn right into Folly Drove. A black Volkswagen Polo stopped behind it.
A grey Volkswagen car then collided with the black Polo forcing it into on-coming traffic. As a result the black Polo was then hit by a Mini travelling in the opposite direction.
The occupant of the Mini, a man, was taken to hospital with back pain but was subsequently allowed home after treatment. The two women in the black Polo received treatment at the scene.
Police are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area who may be able to help our enquiries into the incident. If you can help, contact them using the 101 phone number and quoting reference 5219030872
