Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious road traffic condition in Dawlish last night (4 June)

The collision happened at approximately 7pm last night on the A379 Teignmouth Road, Dawlish outside of The Smugglers inn. The road was closed for five hours.

The collision involved three vehicles.  An unidentified vehicle was stationary, waiting to turn right into the Smugglers Inn and a silver coloured Daewoo Matiz was waiting behind this vehicle.

The Daewoo Matiz was then struck from behind by a Renault Master flatbed vehicle which caused the Matiz to travel a considerable distance uphill by its own momentum.

The driver of the Renault Master flatbed received minor injuries, but the driver of the Matiz, a 60 year old woman woman from Bovey Tracey, received serious life threatening head injuries.

She was airlifted to Derriford hospital where she remains in a critical condition.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the collision, and in particular to the driver of the vehicle which had stopped waiting to turn right into the pub.

Anyone with any information are asked to contact police on 101 quoting police reference 630 040614.
