UPDATED: Man 'stable' after suffering life-threatening injuries in Bolton road crash

The Bolton News: The scene of the crash in Bridgeman Street, Bolton The scene of the crash in Bridgeman Street, Bolton

A MAN has been airlifted to hospital after suffering serious injuries in a crash with a suspected drink driver just outside Bolton town centre.

The accident, involving a Vauxhall Astra and a Peugeot, happened in Bridgeman Street, Bolton, at 7.55am this morning.

Firefighters freed the injured man - named locally as Rob Scott - and paramedics treated him at the scene before he was taken by air ambulance to Wythenshawe Hospital, which is a specialist trauma centre in Manchester.

Police said his pelvic injuries were serious and life threatening, though his condition has improved and a hospital spokesman described him as "stable and comfortable."

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "A 25-year-old man who was driving the other vehicle suffered minor injuries and was taken to Royal Bolton Hospital for treatment.

"He underwent a breath test at the scene and failed it and has been arrested."

Bridgeman Street was closed between Fletcher Street and Thynne Street for four hours while police investigate the incident. The road is now fully open.

Mr Scott's manager, Jason Kenny, of Perrys Peugeot, Bolton, said: "Rob works as a service technician here and was on his way to work. He was a minute or so away from arriving.

"One of his colleagues went with him in the air ambulance. He is in his mid 20s and likes to keep fit so we're hoping he will recover and are thinking of him."


MORE:


Mr Scott's family have been informed.

It is understood that Mr Scott's Peugeot was travelling along Bridgeman Street from Thynne Street in the direction of Fletcher Street when it crashed with the Astra travelling in the opposite direction.

A man at the scene, who asked not to be named, said: "I didn't see it happen, but, right afterwards, the driver of the Astra ran away from the scene and went into Sainsbury's to hide.

"He was Asian and a young-looking guy. I think he was arrested afterwards."

A spokesman for University Hospital of South Manchester, which runs Wythenshawe Hospital, said: "Mr Scott is stable and comfortable. He may need to have more treatment here, but he is conscious, breathing and doing well." The spokesmen did not say when it was likely he could return home. Call police on 101 with information.

This should be an imprisonable offence and could be one where the public write to the attorney general stating that the sentence given is too lenient. Aggravating circumstances are that he ran away, itself an offence at the scene of an accident where there is an injury. He should be named and shamed as well.

I was In Bolton hospital this morning and was sat facing the drunk driver who was handcuffed and escorted by police.
He was being loud and abusive and in my eyes should not of been treated. he was very drunk.
I don't know where the Asian part came from because he was black. (just clearing up the whole Asian thing)
He was shouting that he was not guilty and was not driving, he claimed someone else was and he just took the blame for this person.

Guilty or otherwise he should get 12 month just for being abusive to members of the NHS who had a duty of care to attend to this moron

Todays papers report 1 car in 11 on road is uninsured.Anyone like to quote odds that this guy is one of them.Total diregard for law as with drink drive probably means he will disregard all other laws too.Only remedy to me with uninsured drivers is take car off them and crush it before their very eyes.

Regardless of race, I think that all would agree that ALL drink drivers are nailed-on scum. There is no safe drink driver.

From bigbob's description this particular specimen has the verbals that suggest that this is not his first crime.

If found guilty, be prepared for a pathetically short imprisonment.

Whatever custodial punishment (if any) is given I'll bet the driving ban is minimal. We need to rid the roads of these kind of people and ten year driving bans for this kind of "accident" should be the norm.

It's will be the usual driving ban, when with the justice system realise that a ban is academic, they are probably driving illegal anyway.

ALL charges should carry the full extent of the law and run consecutive.

Dangerous driving
Drink driving
Leaving the scene of an accident
GBH
Etc

Should be a good few years in that lot.

However the do gooders will be in charge and he will get a few month ban and a 20 quid fine, regardless of if he is legal to drive anyway.

We need more police, it's that simple.

Robertsct6, we're with you on this one : 3 scum in the car - all running away - that is sub-human behaviour. No excuse whatsoever. Stinks of criminality. I hope that all three were arrested. With a dangerous driving charge, you're looking at 2 years max. Be prepared to approach the Attorney General for anything less than 2 years on the basis that it is unduly lenient.

Best wishes to Rob jnr

That's the thing it is actually cheaper to go through the courts and get fined a total of about £500-£600 for no insurance!!!

I am now on my 2nd year of insurance back in the UK and its costing £1050+administratio
n costs (due to the fact the insurance companies do not take into account 7 accident free years in The Netherlands - mainly because I hardly drove anyway because of the fantastic integrated public transport)!!!network
)

As regards this news report the offender if/when should be charged with DUI (driving under influence of drink or drug), dangerous driving and attempted murder (as it should be as he would have known he was over the limit before getting behind the steering wheel).

The guy has been arrested. He's not been charged with anything yet. It's a serious incident and hope the other driver makes a full recovery. We don't know the full circumstances. I doubt if attempted murder is considered. The driver under arrest needs to have intended to kill the other driver.

Three people in a car and not one of them had a mobile phone? Normal people do not run away from a car crash unless they have something to hide. Worryingly I don't think there's anything in law to stop the passengers abandoning a seriously injured person and that can't be right in what we consider to be a humane society.

The only positive here is he was speaking English, won't be able to hide behind an interpreter, the law won't deal with him in this country even if he stays around to attend court. These crimes will continue and get worse until prison becomes a deterrent, We need to use prison cells rented in foreign countries, ie Thailand etc, 're offending would become zero and it would save tax payer money, it costs over 200 pound a day to keep a prisoner in a UK jail, in a this jail it's less than 14 pound. Common sense! Time.

Nearly a 100 minus votes - for speaking absolute sense. Thats an indication of the numpties reading these stories - or perhaps a couple of numpties with busy fingers.

Attempted murder????? Murder is purposely taking a life and there's absolutely no indication of that here.

I hope the injured driver makes a speedy recovery. It's always tragic when someone who has worked for a career and a future, has that hard work undone by worthless scum.

Personally, the drunk driver if guilty (and it's a fair assumption given the alcohol, obvious speed, running off etc) should be excecuted. He clearly has no regard for our lives and safety, so why should he have a place on this earth.

The drunk driver was bailed - I wonder if we'll ever see him again.

Well it was the victim's father who stated the drunk driver has been released on bail.

A fairly reliable source one would assume.

The driver made a decision to get behind the wheel of a car whilst under the influence of alcohol. Fact: he failed a roadside breathalyzer test. When he decided to drive whilst not fit, he then took the risk of killing somebody, if I go out with the thinking I might kill somebody then surely that constitutes attempted murder because of chance.

There has been a lot of alleged info but as far as we can tell, the three men are Somalian and were allegedly drinking from a bottle of brandy in the car. They did run but a bystander stopped the driver and handed him to the men working in a nearby butty van whilst he tried to chase after the others. Unfortunately the driver slipped out of their grasp and ran towards sainsburys where police caught up with him.

This is all alleged but I am sure the facts will be found with DNA and finger prints etc.

Rob seems to be making good progress and all at Perrys are relieved that this wasn't much much worse.

If the driver purposely drove his car at someone then it is attempted murder, or murder if the other person died. There is an existing intent to kill.

If the driver lost control of the car and caused a fatal accident, then it is neither attempted murder nor murder.
