A woman pedestrian suffered head injuries after an accident involving two cars in Bedford today, Tuesday, April 22, leaving a road closed as investigations take place.

Police are keen to trace witnesses to the collision which happened at around noon on Collie Road at its junction with Barford Avenue.

It involved a white Vauxhall Astra, a dark green Vauxhall Frontier and an 18-year-old who was walking in the area.

None of the motorists were injured during the collision but the pedestrian suffered a head injury and has been taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital by the ambulance service.

PC Gareth Rees, investigating the cause of the collision, is keen to trace anyone who may have witnessed the collision but who hasn’t yet contacted the police.

PC Rees said: “The road remains closed while a full collision investigation takes place and the road is cleared of any debris.

“All motorists are advised to find an alternative route while this work is being completed.”

He continued: “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at midday today to come forward and help investigators piece together exactly how this collision happened.”

Anyone with information relating to this collision can contact PC Rees, in confidence, at the BCH Collision Investigation Unit on 01438 757500, or Bedfordshire Police on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
