A MAN is appealing for help tracing a witness to a crash after his elderly mum was involved in a car smash which saw a vehicle end up in a field.

Irene Durston, 73, was driving along Haynes Lane, from Bridgwater in to Spaxton, at around 8.35am on Wednesday, October 21, with her eight-year-old grandson, when the crash occurred.

The crash saw Irene’s red Nissan Micra collide head-on with an on-coming vehicle, a gold Renault Megane.

The Megane was damaged along the side during the collision and subsequently left the road, ending up through a hedge and into a field.

The field is believed to be part of Crossmoor Farm.

Now Irene’s son, Ian, is appealing for a witness who stopped and helped at the scene to come forward and help once again.

“There was a white van man who witnessed the accident as he was behind my mum on route to Spaxton village,” said Ian.

“He spoke to my mum and offered to give his account saying to my mum he would be in Splatt lane, Spaxton if needed.

“My mum believes the guy to be slim build five foot eight or taller, mid to late 40s and balding on top with fair hair on the sides.

“Unfortunately, my mum was in shock and didn’t take his name.”

Ian said police were called to the incident but did not attend as neither Irene or the other lady were injured.

“Mum is fine but she’s scared she’s going to lose her no claims,” he added.

Ian would like anyone who knows or has any information about the witness to get in touch.
