Spixworth accident victim tries to trace Good Samaritan who helped her

A disabled woman who was knocked over on her mobility scooter has issued a plea for a woman who came to her aid to get in touch and collect her blanket.

Sue Crooks, 51, was riding her scooter on Buxton Road, Spixworth, near to the junction of Crostwick Lane, when she pulled up behind a van which was parked half on the pavement and half on the road.

Unable to go past it on the path, she waited behind the van to overtake it when the van suddenly reversed back and hit her.

Mrs Crooks, from Orchard Road, Spixworth, was knocked over in her scooter following the accident and was trapped on the road following the incident which happened at about 1.30pm on Friday, February 18.

Some passers-by came to help following the crash, including one woman who provided her with a blanket to comfort her until the ambulance arrived.
