A NEW appeal has been launched to trace a motorist who is believed to have been travelling close to a vehicle involved in a fatal road crash in Selston.

Vicki Dorman (42), of Underwood, died after the blue Subaru Impreza she was driving left the B6016 Langton Hollow and hit a tree at around 9pm on 24th September.

A 35-year-old male passenger, who suffered serious head and arm injuries, has since been released from hospital and continues to recover.

But police say he has been unable to provide them with any details about the incident because of the trauma he is suffering from.

And despite several appeals for information about the driver of the other vehicle, no-one has come forward.

It is now known to be a small car with slim tyres.

Said Det Sgt Ged Hazelwood, of Nottinghamshire Police’s Crash Investigation Unit: “We know they were travelling together close to each other.

“We believe that the Subaru which left the road was in front and we believe the second car was close behind it.

“That does not mean that the second car was committing any offence; there could be a reasonable explanation.”

Det Sgt Hazelwood also urged folk to think back to 24th September and try to recall whether they saw any of their neighbours rushing from their vehicle.

Both the Subaru and the other vehicle were travelling from Selston towards Jacksdale.

Added Det Sgt Hazelwood: “We urgently need to speak to the driver of the other vehicle travelling in convoy with the blue Subaru.

“At the moment there is every possibility that the driver concerned is quite simply a key witness who should not be concerned regarding coming forward.

“Our forensic enquiries are ongoing to identify the vehicle and trace whoever was driving, and if they have not come forward before we knock at their door, there will be a number of questions for them to answer.”

He also said that officers will be continuing their search until they find the driver of the other vehicle.

“We have not finished trawling CCTV - there is a lot to go through and the work is still ongoing,” he said.

Anyone who has any information about the accident or who witnessed it should contact Nottinghamshire Police’s Crash Investigation Unit on 0300 300 9999 ext 800 2227.

Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
