A pensioner has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after a collision with a taxi in Blyth, Northumbria, over the weekend.


Shortly after 7.30pm on Saturday, Northumbria Police officers received a report of a collision between a 74-year-old pedestrian and a taxi at the junction of Marine Terrace and Cyprus Gardens.

The man was taken to hospital with serious injuries.


Enquiries are ongoing and police are now asking anyone who witnessed the incident, or who may have dashcam footage of the collision, to come forward.


Sergeant Lee Butler, of the Motor Patrols Department, said: “This was a serious collision which has resulted in a pedestrian sustaining serious injuries.


“He remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital and officers are supporting his family at this time.


“We are committed to determining the circumstances surrounding this incident and would urge anyone with information, or who was travelling in that area on Saturday night, to come forward."
