UPDATE: Police investigating fatal A606 collision trace vehicle after issuing appeal

Have your say

Detectives investigating a fatal collision on the A606 have traced a small silver car they were appealing for information about last week.

Scalford man Simon Allen (54) died after the black Ford Fiesta Zetec he was driving was involved in a collision with a silver Peugeot 407 on the A606 Nottingham Road between Ab Kettleby and Nether Broughton.

The collision happened at about 12.15pm on Saturday (March 14) - about 1.7 miles away from the junction with Clawson Lane.

Mr Allen, who lived his entire life in Scalford and was a familiar face in the village, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Peugeot 407 contained a man and a woman who were taken to hospital and have since been discharged.

Detective Constable Pete Davies, who is investigating the collision, said: “The Ford Fiesta was travelling towards Melton and the Peugeot was travelling in the opposite direction when the collision occurred.

“We issued an appeal to trace the occupants of a small silver car, which was travelling directly in front of the Peugeot at the time of the collision. We have subsequently identified the vehicle and its occupants.

“However if you saw the collision or saw the vehicles beforehand and haven’t yet spoken to the police we would ask that you contact us on 101. Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could help with our enquiries.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
