Have you been in a no fault car accident in South Derbyshire where a car collided into a tree?
The local district of South Derbyshire is found in the Derbyshire county in England and its population in 2005 was 88,000, although it has been forecasted to grow by 23 per cent to a population of 108,600 by the year 2025. Compared to the other districts in the county, including the East Midlands, its population growth rate is over twice as high. This can be seen in the forecast growth for the whole East Midlands region to grow by 10.5 per cent.
Traffic in the district has increased as well and with it has come a rise in car accidents in South Derbyshire. Recently, a car crash occurred in Linto during the evening that involved a member of the Derbyshire county cricket team, Tom Poynton. Poynton plays as wicketkeeper for the team and the accident happened when he was driving with his father. The vehicle somehow lost control and hit a tree on the side of the road. Tom Poynton’s father died in the crash, he was left with a fractured collarbone and taken to the local hospital.
The Derbyshire county cricket team has been affected greatly by the news as the players knew Tom Poynton’s father well, after he came on the pre-season tour in Abu Dhabi the previous month. The team’s elite performance director, Graeme Welch, was told by Tom about the car accident in South Derbyshire and he informed the rest of the players on the Derbyshire team. They were given the weekend off from training and will have a meeting on the following Monday to assess them.
Derbyshire county cricket club made a statement to the media that Tom Poynton was kept in hospital overnight to treat his suspected fractured collarbone and other potential injuries. Poynton has been associated with the cricket club since he was 11 and played 12 first-class games for the club last season.
