POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a pedestrian was struck by a van on a notorious stretch of road where three people have been killed in about the last eight years.

A Vauxhall Vivaro van struck the 55-year-old Ashover man this month as he was walking along the side of the A632 between Span Carr Farm and Span Carr crossroads between Matlock and Chesterfield and failed to stop at the scene.

The serious collision follows the deaths of car passengers Connor Short, of Ashover, and Liam Chapman, of Clay Cross, both aged 16, who died after a collision in September, 2012, between a Peugeot 206 and a Vauxhall Corsa at the junction of Birkin Lane and the A632 Matlock Road, at nearby Kelstedge. Connor’s father David Short also died in a road traffic incident when he had been walking along the same A632 over eight years ago and was involved in a collision with a car.
