Police are appealing for witnesses after a fatal road traffic collision in a Moorlands village.

The incident, which happened in Cheddleton on Thursday (March 17), sadly resulted in the death of an elderly pedestrian who had been involved with a collision with a white van.

A spokesman for Staffordshire Police said: “Officers are appealing for witnesses and CCTV or dashcam footage after a man died in hospital following a collision in the Staffordshire Moorlands area on Thursday (March 17).

Police were called at 7pm on Thursday to the A520 Leek Road in Cheddleton.

Upon arrival, officers found a white van in collision with a pedestrian.

The pedestrian, a man in his 80s, was conveyed to hospital by ambulance with life-threatening injuries.

Sadly, the man died in hospital a short time later.

His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially-trained officers at this difficult time.”

The police spokesman added: “The driver of the van remained at the scene and is assisting officers with their inquiries.

Anyone who saw what happened or who may have relevant CCTV or dashcam footage of the area at the time of the collision is asked to get in touch with us.”

A spokesman for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “We were called to the junction of Leek Road and Cheddleton Heath Road, Cheddleton Heath, shortly before 7pm on Thursday.

An ambulance, paramedic officer and a North Staffordshire BASICS emergency doctor attended the scene.

When ambulance staff arrived on scene they found a pedestrian, a man, who had reportedly been involved in a collision with a vehicle.

He was being cared for by bystanders and police. Upon assessment by ambulance staff, the man was found to be in a critical condition.

The team immediately commenced trauma care on scene before conveying the man on blue lights to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further emergency care.”

Any witnesses to the incident are being urged to contact Staffordshire Police on Facebook, Twitter, or call 101, quoting incident number 626 of 17 March.
