Police are appealing to the public for information following a serious road traffic collision in East Boldon.

At 10.10am yesterday (Monday) police received a report a man had been out jogging when he was struck by a Flat Back Lorry on Tile Shed Lane.

Emergency services attended and the 54-year-old male was taken to hospital with serious, potentially life-changing injuries. The driver of the vehicle did not sustain any injuries. 

An investigation has been launched into the collision, and police are now keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward and assist officers.

Sergeant Matt Sykes, of Northumbria Police’s motor patrols department, said: “This was a serious incident which has resulted in a man suffering multiple injuries. He remains in hospital and specialist officers are supporting his family at this time.

“A number of people stopped following the collision and a number of witnesses were spoken to by police.  However, we would now urge anyone who has yet to come forward to do so.

“We would also like to hear from anybody who was in the area around that time and who might have dashcam footage.”

Witnesses are asked to contact police by visiting out website report and incident/tell us something page, quoting reference 283 060420 or by emailing the officer in charge at [email protected].
