Family appeal after man seriously injured in north Suffolk crash

A 74-YEAR-OLD man from Lowestoft remained in hospital this week after suffering serious spinal injuries when his moped crashed in Herringfleet.

And the family of the man this week issued an appeal for witnesses to 'come forward' - particularly a car that was believed to be travelling behind the 74-year-old and his blue Piaggio.

Emergency crews were called to St Olaves Road about 12.30pm on Friday, September 2, after the man came off his bike, having apparently hit a kerb.

He was initially taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston but was later transferred to the Princess Royal spinal injuries unit in Sheffield, where he remained this week.

'We want any witnesses to come forward - particularly a car who was following behind, who we believe would've seen what actually happened,' a family spokesman said.
