Police appeal after Brierfield road rage incident


Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man was run over during a road rage incident in Brierfield.

The incident took place in Glen Way around 6-15pm on Thursday, January 23rd, when the driver of a black Audi A3 drove at low speed at the driver of a Jaguar after he stopped his car to speak with him.

The victim landed on the bonnet of the Audi and was carried for several yards before being thrown off. The Audi then drove off.

The 36-year-old victim, from Barrowford, sustained minor injuries to his back and leg.

The incident stemmed from an earlier argument between the drivers in Churchill Way.

PC Matthew Hartup said: “This incident has taken place on a busy road during rush hour so I am confident somebody will have witnessed it.

“It would appear both drivers had been involved in an earlier altercation which has continued onto Glen Way.

“Fortunately, the victim has not been seriously injured but anyone with information should contact Lancashire Police on 101.”

A 29-year-old man from Colne has been interviewed by police in relation to this incident.
