Elderly man’s injuries not life threatening


AN elderly man who was knocked down by a car on Monday is recovering in hospital, say police.

The 78-year-old sustained a head injury when he was hit my a Subaru Trooper on the A638 North Road, Retford at around 9am.

But police say his injuries are not as serious as first thought.

“He is remaining in Bassetlaw hospital under observation as a precaution because of his age,” said a spokesman.

Police are still appealing for witnesses who saw the collision to come forward.

Anyone with information should call PC 2146 Dave Keen on 0300 300 9999 extension 8087076.
