Two Men Killed In Road Accidents

Two men in their 90s were killed at the weekend when they hit by cars in separate accidents at the weekend.

The first accident happened at 9.45pm on Friday on the A3400 Stratford Road near the junction with Moss Lane in Newbold-on-Stour.

A Fiat Uno was in collision with a 90-year-old man, who died from his injuries at the scene. He has not yet been named by police.

On Saturday two men were crossing the road on the A429 in Barford at 8pm when they collided with a black Vauxhall Vectra.

Frederick Byerly, aged 92, from Sandy Way, Barford, was killed as he crossed the road.

Another man, Patrick Lloyd, aged 52 from Wasperton, was taken to Warwick Hospital suffering from fractures to his lower limbs. He was today said to be in a “stable” condition.

The driver of the car, a 35-year-old man, suffered shock, but did not require hospital treatment. He was travelling towards Wellesbourne.

The accident happened just days after the village was finally granted a bypass after more than 20 years of campaigning by residents. They have argued that the road is unsafe for residents because of the amount of traffic passing through.

Witnesses to either crash are being urged to call traffic police at Greys Mallory on 01926 415000.
