Car crash causes multiple injuries and deaths

A car crash in Lancashire, which resulted in multiple injuries and deaths, is being investigated by police.

Eighteen-month-old Jayden Bloomer was being pushed along an Accrington road by mother Jackie when a car driven by a pensioner mounted the curb and ploughed into them both.

The toddler died, while 30-year-old Ms Bloomer is still recovering from her injuries in a Blackburn hospital.

It is not yet clear whether any injury claims will be made by injured parties.

Lancashire Police is appealing for witnesses and an investigation into the incident is underway.

Commenting shortly after the incident occurred, Accrington Road Policing Unit’s Sergeant Pete Sculpher said: "This is a tragic incident and our thoughts go out to both families involved.

"The collision happened on one of the busiest roads in Accrington at a time when many people would be picking children up from school so I would ask anyone that saw anything to come forward and speak to police."ADNFCR-2070-ID-19610939-ADNFCR
