Police are appealing for information after a 43 year old man sadly died following a collision in Haslingden.
The incident happened at shortly after 8pm last night - Wednesday 3 February - when the man was walking along Manchester Road.
As he was outside the Jet Petrol Station, he was involved in a collision with a white Mercedes Sprinter van. The man was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital where he sadly died.
Following CCTV enquiries, officers are keen to trace a man who was seen walking along the same route moments before the collision. They would also like to speak to a woman who was on the opposite side of the road, getting into her car on Hall Street as the collision occurred.
PS Claire Pearson from the Road Policing Unit said:
A mum is trying to make sure that future generations learn to live together without hatred of those who look or sound different.
