Two pedestrians have been injured in a car crash in Derbyshire.

A Vauxhall Astra collided with two women on the B587 towards Ashby from Melbourne on Tuesday, September 12, at just after 2pm.

Derbyshire police are appealing for information on the incident.

A spokesman said: “The Vauxhall Astra allegedly overtook a white Ford Fiesta and a vehicle was coming the other way so the Astra swerved and collided with two women walking on the pavement.”

PC Oliver Priddle, from the force’s Roads Policing Unit, added: “I am looking to trace the driver of the oncoming vehicle as they could hold vital information to the investigation.”

A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and was released under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Priddle on 101 quoting reference number 17000 391895.
