Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision at Othery two weeks ago shortly after 7.30am on 19th July at Grove Hill, Othery. A road sweeper was driving along the road when it was in collision with a skip loader travelling in the opposite direction. Sadly, the driver of the road sweeper, Piotr Polinski, 52, from Indroclaw, Poland, died at the scene as a result of the injuries he sustained.
Police are now appealing for information and ask anyone who witnessed the collision or saw either vehicle prior to the incident to contact them now. In particular, they are keen to speak to two men who were on the scene shortly after the incident and spoke to colleagues from the Avon Fire & Rescue. Anyone with information is asked to call on 101 and quote reference number CI/141/16.
