Concern for man missing after collision

Wesley Thomasson, 26, from Bolton, is believed to have been involved in a collision where an Audi S4 crashed into a field off Junction 33 of the M6 motorway in the early hours of Friday morning (October 28th)

The car had earlier been seen by police traveling northbound on the motorway at approximately 120mph but made off from officers who had started to follow the vehicle.

The car was then discovered on its roof in a field but with no occupants inside.

Police are now concerned for the welfare of Mr Thomasson who is believed to have been driving the vehicle and who could have been injured in the collision.

Inspector Lukmaan Mulla, of Lancaster Police, said: “Our primary concern is for Wesley’s wellbeing and I would urge anyone who sees him or knows where he might be to get in touch with us.

“I would also appeal directly to Wesley himself to contact us if he sees this appeal to let us know he is ok.

“I would stress that while we would wish to speak to him about what has gone on our priority is to establish his whereabouts and make sure he is alright.”
