Police are appealing for information after a woman sadly died following a collision in Ormskirk on Thursday 17th October.

The collision happened at 12.30pm on Park Road, near the pedestrian crossing at Moorgate. A 73-year-old woman was struck by a DAF Lorry as she crossed the road.

The woman, from Ormskirk, suffered serious injuries and sadly died at the scene.

An investigation into the circumstances is on-going.

Sgt Michael Higginson, of Lancashire Constabulary’s Tac Ops, said: “This collision has sadly resulted in a woman losing her life and my thoughts are with her family and friends at this time. I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision, and who has not yet spoken to police, to come forward. I would also appeal to anyone who may have dash-cam footage which captured the incident to contact the police.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting log 0551 of October 17th.

  • It’s terrible what happened I think it is a very busy road and I think lorry’s should be using a different route maybe a bypass could be built for big loaded lorries etc I know they maybe have to go to ormskirk and burscough warehouses delivering but surely someone somewhere can come up with a solution as the tragic is really bad also at this point of day and I know with the university having cars and their parking problems maybe a big indoor car park the indoor market instead of bieng converted in to student accomadTion could of been a car park there should be a survey done of how much tragic goes through that road at the busiest times and what type of tragic and how maybe there could even be like in Chester under ground walk ways for pedestrians cutting through the main busy area for safety of the public and maybe advertise unless you really need to go in your car in ormskirk area leave it at home the one way system actually takes longer to get anywhere round ormskirk than walking if they had an underpass and overpass it would probably help Alana Quinn I actually did a traffic survey in Cumbria for the making of the dalton bypass hence now it done it’s a lot better .
