Fresh appeal for witnesses of fatal crash near Penkridge almost three months on

Sajid Ali was driving a blue Toyota Avensis on Cannock Road in Pillaton at around 7.45pm on January 14 when there was a collision with a black Vauxhall Corsa.

The 50-year-old died after suffering serious injuries at the scene.

The passenger of the Toyota, a man in his late teens, was taken to hospital but has since been discharged.

The driver of the Corsa, a man in his 20s, was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

He underwent surgery and is currently in rehabilitation, Staffordshire Police has said.

Officers are “still keen” to speak to witnesses, including those who alerted others of the crash at the time.

They are “particularly interested” in speaking to a man who was driving towards Penkridge in a white Transit connect type van at the time.
