North Yorkshire Police are appealing for witnesses and information about a fail to stop road traffic collision on Alness Drive in Acomb Park on Sunday 27 October.
The appeal follows a ‘fail to stop’ road traffic collision that happened at around 8.30am and involved a BMW and another car which failed to stop at the scene. The owner of the BMW, a woman in her late 60s, was placing her grandchild into the rear seat of her car when the offending vehicle collided with her open rear door, pinning her between the door and body of her vehicle.
The offending vehicle, described as silver or grey and possibly the size of a small MPV, failed to stop and made off towards Moor Lane. As a result of the collision, the woman suffered broken ribs, a broken collar bone, a fractured knee cap and a potentially broken leg. She was taken by ambulance to York Hospital where she is still receiving treatment.
The Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision, or anyone who recalls seeing either of the vehicles prior to the collision, to get in touch as soon as possible to assist the investigation. In particular, they are appealing for information about the offending vehicle and its current location. This vehicle is likely to have damage to its nearside front end.
If you can help, please contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for Phillip Kennedy. You can also email email@example.com If you wish to remain anonymous, you can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
City of York Council has announced that the stretch of Moor Lane from the ring road roundabout to Cairnborrow is to be resurfaced in November.
The news comes after residents and local Lib Dem councillors raised the deteriorating state of the road, particularly on the bend.
The works will commence on 25th November for a period of 3 nights (weather permitting) and works will be carried out between 7.30pm and 5.00am. In order to carry out these works safely the use of a temporary road closure from the ring road to the junction with Cairnborrow will be necessary. A clearly signed diversion route will be set out for through traffic.
Local Lib Dem councillors have delivered a leaflet across Woodthorpe, Acomb Park and Foxwood asking residents for feedback on the number 12 bus service.
We have received a large number of e-mails and phone calls from residents who are exasperated by the increasing unreliability of the service. Many have noted that more people would be inclined to use the service if they could rely on it.
We are compiling all of the responses received and will be discussing with First and Transport officers at the council what can be done to improve the situation.
Join author Rosemary Cook for an introduction to her book ‘Petticoat Government’, which tells the remarkable story of York’s unique nursing history.
Rosemary Cook, former Director of the Queen’s Nursing Institute, talks about her new book ‘Petticoat Government’, based on original local research. The York Home for Nurses was run by Anglican religious sisters, funded by local people, and governed by a council of famous York names. Dealing with epidemics and floods as well as medicine and surgery, the Home eventually became the Purey Cust Nursing Home.
