Update on IPCC investigation after death of man in Chesterfield road collision

A man who died when he was in collision with a police car in Chesterfield on Monday (4 September 2017) has been named as Dennis Wilson.

Mr Wilson, a 91-year-old widower who lived locally, was pronounced dead at the scene after the collision in Loundsley Green Road at about 8.25am. It is believed he was taking his regular morning walk when it happened.

The single-crewed police car is understood to have been responding to an emergency call at the time and the IPCC is independently investigating the circumstances following a referral from Derbyshire Constabulary.

Several independent witnesses have been identified but IPCC investigators are keen for anyone else who saw the incident but has not yet come forward to contact them on freephone 0800 096 9071 or email: loundsleygreenroad@ipcc.gsi.gov.uk(link sends e-mail)

IPCC Commissioner Derrick Campbell said: “Our thoughts are with Mr Wilson’s family and everyone affected by this tragic incident.”
