Sheep killed in crash

Tuesday 11th June 2013 – 6.35am – Murray MacGregor.

Motorists are being warned to be aware of animal life on country roads at night after a collision between a car and a flock of sheep in Staffordshire.

The collision happened at about 11.1pm last night (Monday) on the A53 Leek to Buxton road just past the Winking Man.

A rapid response vehicle and paramedic officer attended the scene.

Paramedic Area Support Officer, Kevin Errington, said: “Sadly seven sheep died after the collision. The road was closed while the area was cleared.

“The man driving the car was uninjured.

“Although animals like this are normally in fields, others like deer are not. Please take care whilst driving on country roads, especially at night.”
