Officers from our Roads Policing Unit are continuing to appeal for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision in Edge Hill earlier this month.

Shortly before 11.15am on Monday 11 March, emergency services were called to a collision involving a bus and a 54-year-old male pedestrian on Wavertree Road, close to the traffic lights at the junction of Durning Road and Tunnel Road.

The man was taken to hospital with a serious head injury where he was later sadly pronounced deceased. The bus driver remained at the scene to help with enquiries.

Roads Policing Inspector Stuart McIver said: “We have carried out extensive CCTV and witness enquiries but we still want to speak to everyone who was travelling in the area at the time of this tragic incident.

“We believe that pedestrians, private hire taxis and other vehicles were at or approaching the junction where the collision took place, and they may hold vital information to assist us in establishing exactly what happened.

“If you were travelling in either direction at this time, even if you may not realise you captured footage, please check any dashcams or business CCTV and let us know.”

Anyone who witnessed the collision, any bus passengers who may have captured images or footage, or anyone who was passing and may have vehicle dashcam, is asked to contact Roads Policing on (0151) 7775747, contact @MerPolCC, or you 101 with reference 19100102999. Information can also be provided anonymously to the independent charity @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111.
